GOLDEN VALLEY - Responders from the Golden Valley Fire Department had a hard time finding a wrecked truck Wednesday night on U.S. 93, and they had to perform a difficult extraction of one of the crash victims when they reached the site.
The initial report was of a rollover accident on northbound U.S. 93 at mile post 60 at 9:30 p.m. After initially not finding the crash, responders finally spotted skid marks leading to a wrecked Dodge Durango about 100 feet off the road west of the southbound lanes.
Two people, both in their mid-20s, were critically injured. A female passenger had been ejected and was found about 30 feet from the vehicle. The female driver was pinned underneath the truck, which had rolled several times. It appears they weren't wearing seatbelts, according to the fire department.
Firefighters removed the truck's roof while supporting the rest of the vehicle so it would not further crush the trapped driver.
Both patients were taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center.
Department of Public Safety
is investigating the accident.
