GOLDEN VALLEY ­ A rollover accident Tuesday afternoon killed a Kingman resident and critically injured a Golden Valley resident.

About 3:47 p.m., Mohave County Sheriff's deputies responded to the intersection of Shinarump Drive and Coconino Road, MCSO spokeswoman Trish Carter said.

Three units and seven personnel from the Golden Valley Fire Department also were dispatched, Capt. Rudy Barboa said.

One victim was pronounced dead at the scene of trauma, while the other was taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center with trauma injuries to his body.

He subsequently was airlifted to University Medical Center in Las Vegas, Barboa said.

Carter said the vehicle was a green GMC pickup that was westbound on Shinarump Drive when it rolled, ejecting both of its 24-year-old occupants.

Joseph Eugene Stinson of Kingman was pronounced dead at the scene. River Medical ambulance personnel took Corey Michael Margules of Golden Valley to KRMC for stabilizing treatment of trauma injuries before he was airlifted to University Medical Center in Las Vegas, Carter said.

"We're not sure at this point who was driving, but speed may have been a factor," Carter said.

Department of Public Safety officers assisted deputies at the scene.

The accident remains under investigation.
