Wreck, dust slow traffic on U.S. 93
Vehicle's occupants wore their seatbelts

KINGMAN - A family avoided serious injury Sunday evening in a rollover accident on southbound U.S. 93 near mile marker 53.

The vehicle rolled and slid down the highway before coming to rest on its wheels, according to the Golden Valley Fire Department.

Firefighter-paramedics treated four people at the scene, but ultimately only one passenger was transported for medical care. Capt. Boyd Lewis said all occupants were wearing seat belts, which he said played a key role in limiting injuries.

The highway was restricted to a single lane for about 90 minutes while the Arizona Department of Public Safety investigated the crash and had the vehicle towed.

The dust storm that moved in Sunday evening limited visibility, prompting the National Weather Service to issue an alert that lasted until 8 p.m.

Here's a suggestion:

How about slowing down when visibility is reduced, instead of driving as fast as you can.

Mr. Jim Rhodes and his Kingman Farms project over on Red Lake could be the cause of all that dust that was a contributing factor in this accident. Sounds a bit far fetched but consider this. Sense Mr. Rhodes began farming in that area every time the wind blowers huge dust plums gather in the air. I've live less than 15 miles from Red Lake and have for the last 8 years and as long as I've lived there I've never seen that much dust. Up until this years Monsoon season I've only seen two or three Haboobs prior to all the plowing going on on at Red Lake. This season I've already witnessed four. The day of the accident I watched the largest Haboob ever blow up and over the Cerbats. I have the pictures and video to proof it if anyone's interested I'll gladly share. I posted the video on FB. Remember the Oaklahoma/Texas dust bowl of the 1930? You can't plow up all that loose soil in a dry windy location like the Mohave Desert and expect it to not blow away.
