** Vehicle vs Pedestrian Crash **
On Wednesday, September 12th, at about 5:20pm, Kingman Police investigated a vehicle vs pedestrian crash in the 3300blk of E. Andy Devine Ave. A white in color Ford F-150, driven by a 46 year old Golden Valley woman, struck a 69 year old male subject who was walking across the roadway while pushing a shopping cart. The 69 year old man received a serious head injury and was transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center before being airlifted to University Medical Center in Las Vegas. The investigation determined that driver of the Ford F-150 had entered the roadway from a private drive and did not see the pedestrian due to the angle of the setting sun. Speed, alcohol or other impairment where not involved in the cause of the crash. The investigation is ongoing; however the male subjects’ failure to use a crosswalk is a contributing factor in the crash.
This area sees many close calls due to pedestrians not using the crosswalks. Due to the width of the roadway and the amount of traffic, pedestrians are urged to always cross at designated crosswalks. The Arizona Revised Statute 28-793.C states that pedestrians must use a designated crosswalk. This regulation also establishes a civil violation and penalty of $175. The KPD traffic enforcement unit has stepped enforcement efforts in this area, in addition to the 100blk of W., Andy Devine Ave., near the Powerhouse Visitors Center. Written warnings will be issued for first time violations. Subsequent violations will result in a citation being issued.
