KINGMAN - Two motorists practicing situational awareness avoided a potential carjacking Monday after a Golden Valley man fled from a car crash and attempted to enter their vehicles.

An off-duty Kingman police officer chased the man down and held him for fellow officers before he could escape.

According to Kingman Police Capt. Rusty Cooper, Robert Allen Eaton, 25, was driving too fast on Hualapai Mountain Road when he rear-ended a car stopped at the intersection of Hualapai Mountain Road and Railroad Avenue.

Eaton fled on foot and reportedly attempted to open the doors of two vehicles, asking the drivers to take him from the scene, but they had locked their doors as he approached, said Cooper.

Following his capture, police reportedly discovered assorted narcotics in the vehicle Eaton had been driving and that he had both felony and misdemeanor warrants for his arrest.

He was charged with felony possession of narcotic drugs, misdemeanor charges of leaving the scene of an injury crash, driving on a suspended license and the warrants.

The driver of the vehicle Eaton struck sustained minor injuries, said Cooper. Eaton was booked into the Mohave County jail.
