KINGMAN – A car got stuck in floodwaters on Stockton Hill Road during Monday’s monsoon downpour and the driver was assisted by Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue team.

A citizen reported that a sedan had been washed off Stockton Hill Road near mile post 13 at around 7 p.m. Monday and became submerged in the running wash.
