Infant escapes injury in Wednesday collision

KINGMAN - No one was seriously hurt when a car struck a 49-year-old woman pushing her 6-week-old son in a stroller in a slow-speed collision Wednesday.

Battalion Chief Bill Johnston said an engine with the Kingman Fire Department was driving past the intersection of Stockton Hill Road and Airway Avenue around 4 p.m. when they spotted the woman, who appeared to be hurt, sitting on the curb with the stroller beside her.

The woman was reportedly walking along Stockton Hill Road and was crossing Airway Avenue with the "walk" signal when she was clipped by a Buick making a right turn on red.

The car had stopped at the light and was going an estimated 5 miles per hour when the woman was struck.

The woman complained of abdominal and back pain and was transported to the hospital as a precaution. The baby was unharmed.

Capt. Rusty Cooper said the 25-year-old driver of the Buick was cited for failure to yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk and lack of insurance.
