KINGMAN – A 92-year-old Kingman woman suffered life-threatening injuries Saturday morning when she was rear-ended on Harrison Street.


Deputy Police Chief Rusty Cooper in an email said the woman was headed north and slowing down her 1986 Toyota sedan to make a right on Detroit Avenue when a 45-year-old Kingman man driving a 2006 Hyundai behind her hit the Toyota “at a high rate of speed.”

Cooper said the woman was taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center and then flown to University Medical Center. She was listed is serious but stable condition Monday morning.

A 72-year-old passenger in the Toyota received minor injuries and the driver of the Hyundai sustained minor burns from the air bag. He was given a ticket charging him with failure to control speed to avoid a collision.

Cooper said driver inattention caused the accident, not any type of impairment.
