Injury Crash on Coyote Pass
Kingman Police investigated a crash on Hwy 93 (Coyote Pass), MP 69 northbound, wherein an AMR ambulance crashed into a slower-moving tractor-trailer. The tractor-trailer was towing double trailers loaded with potatoes. The impact caused the coupling connecting the double trailers to break. The driver of the ambulance was trapped due to the collision. He had to be extricated by Fire Department personnel. Both drivers were transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center. The driver of the ambulance was later transported to Las Vegas with serious, non-life threatening injuries. The truck driver had possible back injuries. The northbound roadway was restricted for about 2 hours. Traffic north and southbound was affected as a result of the crash. The investigation is ongoing. Speed and inattention are believed to be factors in the crash.
