KINGMAN - Saturday's torrential downpour stranded several motorists, swept away a woman and caused at least one wreck, according to Kingman Police Sgt. David Coffin.

The monsoon rain that began in the afternoon and lasted two hours flooded washes and created havoc within the city limits.

Kingman Police officers responded to 14 incidents and the Kingman Fire Department responded to five weather-related calls, said Coffin in an email.

Several motorists were stranded in the 2600 block of Gordon Drive, said Coffin, with both KPD officers and deputies with the Mohave County Sheriff's Office assisting motorists.

Other motorists were stranded throughout the city.

The two most serious incidents occurred on Airway Avenue. In the first event, a 46-year-old woman fell into the wash and was swept away near the 2000 block of Airway Avenue. The woman was able to reach the bank, where police and firefighters rescued her.

She was taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center as a precautionary measure and later released.

Police officers and firefighters responded to Airway Avenue and Santa Rosa Drive after a 22-year-old Kingman man lost control of his vehicle and struck a utility pole.

The pole snapped at its base and lines fell to the ground, said Coffin. The accident caused a brief power outage in the area.

The driver sustained a mild concussion.

The Arizona Department of Pubic Safety put a helicopter in the air to assist emergency responders on the ground.

As a result of flood damage, Gordon Drive between Powell Avenue and Bank Street is closed indefinitely, said Coffin.

the last time it flooded there, the gas tanks got water in them, they just kept pumping.
