Motorcyclist dies from injuries sustained in crash

KINGMAN – A Kingman man died late Friday after crashing his motorcycle and slicing his femoral artery, causing his death.

Mohave County Sheriff’s Office reported Bryan Adkins, 45, left a residence near the intersection of Thompson Avenue and North Van Nuys Road. He accelerated as he headed on north on North Van Nuys Road, lost control of the motorcycle and was thrown from the bike.

He suffered a large laceration on his leg that began to bleed profusely.
