KINGMAN - The driver of a AAA transport vehicle sustained minor injuries when he rolled his car just before 6 a.m. Friday near milepost 46 on Interstate 40.

According to the Golden Valley Fire Department, the driver was eastbound when he entered the median, then overcorrected in an attempt to get back on the road, causing the vehicle to slide and roll over.

He crossed both lanes and ended up on the embankment.

The driver was wearing his seatbelt, and that's what prevented serious injuries, according to the fire department. He was transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety will investigate the accident.

The cars pass me all the time doing at least 15 mph over the speed limit. So this is no suprise.

Well bumpy...since milepost 46 is West going toward CA, I don't think the Kingman to 93 stretch had much to do with anything.

Boy, I can't wait til they do repave it, then people will have to complain about the delays.

The road stretch between 93 and I- 40 all the way to KingMan is so ruff probably tossed the man off the road.
ADOT does not do there jobs. I have been almost thrown off my motorcycle at night by all the ruts they do not fix!!! But They put up a sign that says Rough Road (Really ??????)
