Pedestrian killed Tuesday in Kingman

KINGMAN - A 74-year-old Kingman woman was killed Tuesday after she was struck by a pickup while walking across Northern Avenue.

Sharon Delores Haynes was transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center, where she died of injuries suffered in the accident.

Mohave County Sheriff's deputies and paramedics responded to the 2800 block of Northern Avenue at Benton Street at about 6:45 p.m.

According to sheriff's office spokeswoman Trish Carter, the driver of a 1993 Toyota was traveling westbound in the right-hand lane. She merged to the inside lane when she spotted Haynes in the roadway and turned back to the right, but was unable to avoid hitting Haynes.

The Mohave County Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death. Neither alcohol nor speeding were factors in the accident, said Carter.

The accident remains under investigation.
