Police have determined that the victim of a fatal traffic accident was at fault for a two vehicle collision last Friday in Lake Havasu City. Sergeant Kirk Cesena said investigators ruled that Jill Gwen, 62, Lake Havasu City, failed to yield the right of way when she made a left turn from Silver Saddle Drive onto Chemehhuevi Boulevard and her 2010 Kia Forte sedan was struck by a westbound 2005 Chevrolet pickup truck at 3:17 p.m.
Cesena said Gwen suffered major injuries in the wreck and that she died shortly after she was transported to Havasu Regional Medical Center. He said the driver of the pickup truck, Jeffrey Shmitt, 45, Lake Havasu, was treated for lesser injuries at the hospital.
Cesena said neither speed nor alcohol were accident factors.
