A 55-year-old Bullhead City man and his 11-year-old grandson who were in this 1984 Ford Bronco are in serious but stable condition following an accident near Yucca Sunday morning. Mohave County Sheriff's deputies responded to the two-vehicle accident that occurred in the area of South Butch Cassidy Road and Cholla Drive around 9:20 a.m. The driver of the Bronco was reportedly traveling west on a gas line road and collided with a 1991 Chevrolet pickup as he crossed South Butch Cassidy Road. After colliding, the Chevrolet truck caught fire. Sheriff's spokeswoman Trish Carter said that passing motorists were able to remove the female driver of the truck before the vehicle was fully engulfed in flames. Yucca Fire Department personnel responded and extricated the occupants of the Bronco. The occupants of both vehicles were airlifted to Las Vegas trauma centers. Carter said that all of the individuals involved are in serious but stable condition.

It's exactly BECAUSE the energy was absorbed by every part of that vehicle that they were able to survive such an impact. If they were in, say, a '76 Olds Delta88 they probably would have been killed, although the car wouldn't have suffered much more than a dented bumper. See how that works? Physics 101

I live in that general area. A stop signs mean NOTHING to most of the people that live out there. The rule of thumb is to drive as fast as you can and don't look for stop signs. I am really surpised we don't see more of these kind of accidents. I have learned over the years to always "watch those intersections".

Wow, not one piece of metal on that truck is unbent. Really gives an idea as to how the impact travels through the whole vehicle like a wave and why the human body hurts so bad when you live through such a crash. Best wishes to those injured in that crash.
