KINGMAN - Two people were rescued in separate incidents Monday afternoon.

One of them involved a woman who was injured after she crashed while mountain biking on the Monolith Gardens hiking trail outside of Kingman.

The other regarded a lost hiker in the Hualapai Mountains.

A 60-year-old woman managed to walk about half a mile with a serious leg injury after crashing her bike sometime after 5 p.m. and falling onto a rocky outcropping about a mile and a half from the trailhead on U.S. 93 and milepost 69.

"She tried to make it back," said Kingman Fire Battalion Commander Bill Johnston. "She just couldn't go any more."

Firefighters hiked about a mile with friends of the woman who met them at the trailhead. A Ranger helicopter unit from the Arizona Department of Public Safety transported the woman to Kingman Regional Medical Center with injuries to her upper left leg, said Johnston.

In the other incident, Mohave County Search and Rescue units found another 60-year-old, a hiker from Brookland Park, Mich., who was by himself.

The man called dispatchers to report he was lost.

Search and Rescue found the man at about 5:22 p.m. in the Potato Patch loop trail. He was in good health and taken to his vehicle.
