Two Boys Struck By Vehicle, One in Serious Condition

KINGMAN — Two young boys were allegedly struck by a vehicle near Harrison Street and E. Andy Devine Avenue this afternoon.

The Kingman Police Department investigated a vehicle versus pedestrian crash about 1:45 p.m. June 11 in the area of E. Andy Devine Avenue and Harrison Street. Two young boys were struck by the vehicle.

Two cousins, a 12-year-old and a 6-year-old, were riding their scooters on the sidewalk along E. Andy Devine Avenue approaching Harrison Street. 

A Dodge truck, driven by a 36-year-old Kingman woman, was allegedly stopped on Harrison Street at Andy Devine Avenue. Police said the boys started crossing the intersection, and the vehicle also entered on to E. Andy Devine Avenue simultaneously.

Police said the truck hit the 12-year-old boy, knocking him to the ground. Investigators believe that the 6-year-old boy was struck and run over by the truck’s right rear tire. 

KPD said the 12-year-old received minor abrasions and a sprain to his leg, while the 6-year-old received significantly more serious injuries. Both were taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center, where the youngest boy was later airlifted to University Medical Center in serious but stable condition.

The driver of the truck was issued a citation charging her with failure to yield to pedestrian in a crosswalk. 

As of today, the 6-year-old was listed in serious, but stable condition.
