Wrecks pile up around Kingman
KINGMAN - Wednesday was a busy day for Kingman Police and a bad day for five motorists and one young bicyclist.
Kingman Police officers investigated a two-car collision on Stockton Hill Road and KRMC Drive at about 9:20 a.m. after a Golden Valley woman allegedly ran a red light and barreled her Ford van into a Toyota sedan driven by a 17-year-old Kingman resident.
Kimberly L. Bates, 35, was cited for failure to stop at a red light and for not wearing eyeglasses as required.
The side impact crash forced the teenager's car to slide onto the sidewalk. The teen complained of back and neck injuries and later sought medical attention.
At 4:15 p.m., KPD officers responded to the 3100 block of Stockton Hill Road after a Toyota sedan driven by a 26-year-old Kingman resident struck a 12-year-old riding his bike south on the northbound sidewalk.
The boy sustained minor injuries and was taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center as a precaution.
No citation was issued. The KPD said the boy was at fault. Bicyclists are required to ride with traffic flow along the edge of the roadway. It is illegal to ride on sidewalks or against traffic.
About an hour later, KPD officers responded to a two-car crash and rollover on Burbank Street in front of the Mohave County Library.
Denishia Siyuja, 19, of Kingman was driving a 2002 Nissan SUV when she attempted to pass a Dodge SUV driven by a 27-year-old Kingman resident who was slowing to turn into the library.
The Dodge struck the Nissan as it turned.
The collision caused the Nissan to roll a full rotation.
Siyuja suffered serious cuts and abrasions and was transported to KRMC. She was cited for unsafe passing and the accident is under further investigation.
