The Mohave County Sheriff’s office is investigating a May 4 traffic fatality in the northwest Arizona community of Dolan Springs. Agency spokeswoman Trish Carter said the two vehicle collision occurred at 11:00 a.m. on Pierce Ferry Road.
Carter said a white Suzuki station wagon was eastbound when it drifted into a westbound lane, prompting a collision with an oncoming Dodge truck. She said the driver of the Suzuki was dead at the scene and that the victim’s name is withheld pending notification of kin.
Carter said an autopsy will attempt to determine the cause of death and answer the question of whether the driver suffered a medical event prior to the crash.
Carter said the driver of the truck, William Frakes, 73, Dolan Springs, was transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center for treatment of a fractured ankle and facial lacerations.
