GOLDEN VALLEY - Two Golden Valley residents riding a quad were injured when the 12-year-old driver reportedly ran a stop sign and struck a truck Tuesday evening.

The Golden Valley Fire Department and Mohave County Sheriff's deputies responded to the crash at about 6:50 p.m. at the intersection of West Shipp Drive and Santa Cruz Road. Bystanders told emergency responders the girl and her 18-year-old passenger, also a female, collided with an eastbound Dodge pickup. Both riders were thrown onto the pavement. The quad rolled under the truck.

The girl broke her collarbone and was transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center, where she was treated and released, according to Mohave County Sheriff's spokeswoman Trish Carter.

The passenger sustained a fracture and was flown to Sunrise Medical Center in Las Vegas.

Article comment by: Your Kidding I Hope


I hope you are kidding when you said "it looks like time for a school safety presentation" This is not the schools responsibility. This is a parent safety education responsibility beginning with educating the parents on the current laws regarding age limits. How much more does the public such as you expect to take on regarding children. Make parents responsible for situations such as this. Maybe if more parents were responsible incidents like this may not happen.

As for comments like live and learn - hard to learn if a child dies. Parents should have been more responsible in this situation.

looks like it's time for a school safety presentation regarding this sort of thing. Better now than one later, named after a couple dead kids.

@the Aunt
Have to wonder if you would be saying live and learn had the girls broke through the intersection a half a second earlier and the truck hit and killed the girls. My bet is not. Take some responsibility for this and admit they were darn lucky. If they had been killed you and the families would have had a great loss, the driver would have had to live with it all their lives. All it would have take was to take the keys. This is an accident that did not have to happen.

@ the aunt..... "live and learn"? Are you kidding? So if someone had been killed because of this idiotic, irresponsible behavior, would you still have said "live and learn"? Or maybe just "Oh well, kids will be kids"? A 12-year-old illegally on the street and totally ignoring the traffic laws?

@ no name........ shut up! was it your truck? it was an accident and these kids were hurt and the damage is not your concern...... the parents are not neglecting their children.... kids will be kids and this is an unfortunate example of the consequences that result from kids making poor choices... hence the phrase.... LIVE AND LEARN....

Re: No Name

Yes, you are exactly right. Just like back in 2007 near Chloride when a 13-year old girl who was illegally operating an ATV (16 years of age) with another underage passenger (deliberately ignoring the ATV manufacturer's operating warnings) and unsupervised by the father who left them behind (child neglect/endangerment) whom one was later fatally injured by falling into a mineshaft.

Then the father thought the private land owner was somehow liable for a century-old abandoned and obscure mineshaft on a steep mountain side that they did not excavate (or much less knew existed) and even more absurd was that he thought somehow the BLM was responsible.

Perhaps this time the parents can sue the pick up truck driver, the County and even the ATV manufacturer as well. Shoot, maybe the State of Arizona and the BLM is liable as well!

Lets see. We have 12 year old who under Arizona Law is not allowed to be driving under any circumstances on a road driving, blows through a intersection injuring herself and her passenger who should have known the 12 year old was violating the law. They hit and damage someones truck and now her parents are responsible for the hospital and damage to the truck. Maybe they should be charged also for leaving child endangerment. This has to stop and the only way to get it across is to start charging the parents. You are not thier friends you are the parent. Thank God the child was not killed. It is only a matter of time though if we continue along this road.

This is the second story I have read in the last few weeks where a quad rider ran a stop sign and was hit by a car. The first was an adult and now a kid. REALLY???? Does anyone around here have any common sense at all ????
