One person was killed and three people were hurt in a single vehicle traffic accident in northwest Arizona Tuesday. Mohave County Sheriff’s office personnel responded at 5:15 a.m. to the crash on Stockton Hill Road, about six miles north of Kingman.
Agency spokeswoman said a northbound 2012 Chevy Silverado was passing other vehicles in the southbound lane when it encountered an oncoming car. Carter said the pickup truck entered a wash and became airborne when launched over an embankment before rolling nose first.
Dead at the scene was one of the passengers, Darlene Kay Haskie, 49, Marble Canyon, Arizona. The driver, DeeschiiNii Salem Graymountain, 21, Golden Valley, and two other passengers, Brenda Ayala-Alcantar, 22, Kingman, and Tsosie Melanie Lanell, 20, Laughlin, Nevada, were transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center for treatment of their injuries.
Carter said excessive speed appears to be a contributing factor and that an accident investigation continues.
