coyote passFour adults and a child were injured in a two vehicle collision at Coyote Pass on U.S. 93 at about 10:00 p.m. Saturday. Deputy Kingman police Chief Rusty Cooper said the crash occurred when a southbound vehicle traveling in the northbound lanes struck another vehicle head-on. Kingman and Golden Valley Firefighters and ambulance personnel tended to patients at the scene. Golden Valley Fire Chief Thomas O’Donohue said one person was trapped and pinned in the southbound Chevrolet that was upside down. He said three other adults and the child were pinned in the northbound Saturn that sustained heavy front-end damage. “Firefighters faced a lengthy extrication and complicated extrication from both vehicles,” O’Donohue said in a news release. “The child, who was in a car seat, was rapidly removed and transported to KRMC while firefighters used the Jaws of Life to pry the car apart to gain access the occupants of the front seat.” The news release said that northbound lanes were restricted to one lane for an hour, and finally all traffic was diverted around Coyote Pass for another hour to protect the emergency responders and patients during the extrication process. Cooper said possible alcohol involvement is one component of the accident investigation.
