GOLDEN VALLEY – Three male juveniles were involved in a rollover accident early this morning and one died at the scene.

About 3:30 a.m., Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies contacted two of the youths near milepost 60 on U.S. 93, said Sandy Edwards, assistant media spokesperson for the MCSO.

They directed deputies to the accident scene on Legend Ranch Road, about one-half mile west of U.S. 93.

An engine and three personnel from the Golden Valley Fire Department responded, engineer David Martin said.

They found the 17-year-old driver ejected and pinned below a 1991 Eagle Talon. He was pronounced dead and his name will be released after next of kin are notified, Edwards said.

The other two juveniles were treated at the scene for minor injuries and released.

Speed may have been a contributing factor to the accident, which remains under investigation, Edwards said.

KINGMAN – A 43-year-old Kingman resident was severely burned Thursday night when the 12- by 60-foot mobile home he was living in caught fire.

About 10 p.m., two engines and 14 personnel from the Kingman Fire Department responded to the 600 block of Park Street, Battalion Chief Bill Johnston said.

The residence was “extremely well involved” in flames upon arrival of firefighters.

Rod Glotkowski, the lone occupant of the structure, was found outside the home. He was treated on scene for first-, second-, and third-degree burns to his face, arms and chest and taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center. He later was airlifted and admitted to University Medical Center in Las Vegas.

The home was extensively damaged by the fire, which is under investigation to determine a cause, Johnston said.

KINGMAN – Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Shawn Ray Rohm, 34, of Kingman on Tuesday on a felony failure to appear warrant issued by Mohave County Superior Court and misdemeanor failure to pay fines warrant out of Kingman Municipal Court.

Deputies contacted Rohm in the 3800 block of Northfield Avenue regarding the two warrants, a news release from the MCSO stated.

Rohm was taken into custody without incident and booked into Mohave County Jail.

KINGMAN – Two residents of New Mexico were injured Wednesday night when the Harley Davidson Roadking motorcycle they were riding collided with a sedan on Highway 68 near milepost 24.1.

About 6:12 p.m., two units and five personnel from the Golden Valley Fire Department responded to the scene, Capt. Tony DeMaio said.

A news release from the Department of Public Safety identified the motorcycle driver as Christopher Pino, 30, and his passenger as Kathy Peterson, 23.

Edward Otis Tackett, 63, of Kingman was identified as the driver of the sedan.

Rick Ulrich, operations assistant in the Kingman office of the DPS, said the sedan was southbound on Higley Road and pulled out onto Highway 68, clipping the westbound motorcycle.

DeMaio said Pino was taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center with a head injury and possible broken left arm. Guardian Air flew Peterson to University Medical Center in Las Vegas with a severe injury to her right leg.

Pino was later airlifted to UMC with head trauma, Ulrich said.

Tackett refused medical treatment at the scene.

DPS officers arrested Tackett on two outstanding misdemeanor warrants and for driving on a suspended license, the news release stated.

“The Golden Valley Fire Department wishes to thank bystanders and employees of Dr. (Charles) Lindsay’s office for the help they provided at the scene,” DeMaio said.
