As Kingman car crash attorneys with years of experience handling multiple vehicle accidents, we were stunned by the events surrounding a three-car collision reported by the Kingman Daily Miner on Wednesday, May 16th, 2012. According to reports from police, a car was exiting off of I-40 onto Stockton Hill Road mid-morning on Wednesday when the driver experienced a medical emergency and lost control of the vehicle. The driver veered across traffic and collided with two other cars before jumping over a curb, smashing through a fence, and dropping into a ditch. Two people who were riding in the car were seriously injured and transported to the hospital. Their current condition is unknown. Initial statements by police report that the other involved drivers were not hurt. We are concerned for the people who were injured in this collision and wish them a swift recovery.
