Man in Stopped Vehicle Killed in Kingman Car Accident
When bad weather strikes the area, it always leads to serious problems on roads of all types. People make strange decisions, vehicles do not handle as they normally do and visibility is reduced. While an exact cause is not yet known, one man who was sitting in his vehicle along the side of a highway was killed yesterday when a pickup truck slammed into him in a fatal Arizona car accident. Given the large number of Arizona car accidents that occurred in the affected areas, the investigation being done by police could take some time.
According to reports, this fatal Kingman car accident occurred yesterday at approximately 11 a.m. when an unidentified driver parked along State Route 68 between Kingman and Bullhead City. The driver pulled over for unknown reasons, possibly due to the weather, and a pickup truck came along and collided with the vehicle on the side. The man was killed instantly and the crash occurred after a string of less severe Arizona car accidents had occurred in the area. Police will continue to attempt to identify a cause for the crash.
