Victim of crash identified
The driver of a Ryder rental truck, who was killed around 4:55 a.m.
Friday in an accident on Interstate 40, has been identified as Raymond Webb, 62, of Los Angeles.
Webb was killed when he lost control of the rental truck as he tried to avoid debris from two previous tractor-trailer accidents just minutes before in the westbound lanes on Interstate 40 about 23 miles east of Kingman, said Department of Public Service spokesman Andy Vidaure.
The rental truck went off the road; overturned as it went through a guard rail, crushing the top of the rental truck; and landed in an embankment, Vidaure said.
Hilda Macis, 55, of Alhambra, Calif., a passenger in the truck was taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center with multiple abrasions and contusions.
Webb and Macis were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident, Vidaure said.
The debris may have come from an earlier accident in which a semi-truck lost control and slammed into a guard rail around 4:25 a.m.
Friday taking out about 200 feet of the railing and sending debris onto the road.
Another semi tractor-trailer, trying to avoid debris from the first big rig, also lost control and overturned about 20 minutes later, Vidaure said.
The drivers of the two big rigs were not seriously injured, he added.
Pinion Pine Fire Department responded to the scene putting out a fire in the engine compartment of the rental truck, said PPFD Capt.
