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.
