KINGMAN - Two people were killed in separate traffic accidents Sunday. One is blamed on a blown front tire, while in the other, a man is charged with manslaughter per DUI.

The first accident, on Interstate 40 near milepost 51, killed James Bremmer, 54 of Yuba City, Calif., and seriously injured one of his sons.

He was headed east on the interstate when the front left tire blew on his 2002 Ford F250 at about 2 p.m., according to Officer Carrick Cook, the spokesman for the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

The truck crossed the median and struck a 2013 tractor-trailer driven by Troy Whitaker, 52, of Celeste, Texas, said Cook.

In the pickup truck were passengers Patricia Bremmer, 77, Camille White, 52, Sean Bremmer, 24, and Gregory Bremmer, 22, all of Yuba City.

Sean Bremmer was the most seriously injured survivor. He was transported to a Las Vegas hospital.

David Gassett, 62, was in the sleeper of the semi. Both he and Whitaker sustained moderate injuries. The men were hauling mail for the United States Postal Service.

Traffic was backed up for miles as DPS and Kingman Fire Department personnel responded to the crash.

In the second accident, a 17-year-old Kingman boy was killed in a two-vehicle crash Sunday night when an allegedly impaired motorist rear-ended him.

Cody Raymond died at Kingman Regional Medical Center at about 2:40 a.m., four hours after the crash on Route 66 at milepost 59, about three miles from the city limits, said Cook.

Delbert Brechler, 45, of Kingman was driving a 1998 Volvo passenger car when he struck the back of the 1990 Ford pickup driven by Raymond, said Cook.

The impact sent the truck into the median, where it rolled onto its roof. Raymond's passenger, 18-year-old Jesse Selder, of Meadview, called 9-1-1 to report the accident, said Cook.

Neither Selder nor Brechler were injured, said Cook.

Brechler was arrested and initially charged with aggravated assault per DUI, but that charge was later upgraded to manslaughter per DUI, said Cook.

This young man had a great step father and mother who know the Lord. With all that was in his ear about Jesus I am sure that our Lord came down and comforted him before he knew was was going on. Sad, sad, thing to happen but he is the lucky one to be with our Lord. He will be waiting for you Chuck and Shawna. No words can express the pain of a mother losing her child but take comfort in knowing he is safe and smiling big while walking with our God. He is getting things ready for when you see him again. Much thought and prayer to you both and your families. Good lesson here.. never wait to say to love ones what you feel. You never know when tomorrow isnt going to come.

No words can explain the loss of Cody. He was my best friends son and he had become one of my best friends. Hanging with Ron will never be the same without Cody there by his side.

Its truely sickening to hear that an old friend has died at such a young age. (delete)This kid was such a happy person. His smile could light up anyones day. Its so sad to hear that hes gone... Its rather shocking. People that decide to drive drunk should know better. When they are getting into their vehicle to drive away, they need to think that they may just kill some kid. (delete) Cody didnt deserve this. Bad things happen to good people. If only it were the other way around...

And yet another drunk diver escaped unharmed, while a young life was selfishly taken by the intoxicated idiot. My sincere love and prayers are with your family in this difficult time, you were a good kid, even though I only knew you from school, you had a good head on your shoulders, and im sure you will be surely missed. R.I.P

You'll be forever in our hearts, Cody. You're already missed so much. Keep an eye on us down here, especially Jesse and your brother. I hope there's bikes and trails where you are.
May Delbert wake up every morning and think about what he stole from the world by being so selfish.
