KINGMAN – Authorities say a pair of collisions Saturday caused traffic delays on eastbound Interstate 40 and, later, on Highway 66.
Arizona Department of Public safety reported a two-vehicle collision with injuries on eastbound I-40 at about 4:30 p.m.

ADOT then reported that Highway 66 was blocked in both directions due to a “serious crash” near milepost 95 (Molthan Lane) near Truxton.
