Stranded driver from New York shoveled out by Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies

April 13, 2019

ARIZONA STRIP – When the location and road conditions kept tow companies from helping a stranded out-of-state motorist, Mohave County Sheriff deputies came through in a pinch.

On Thursday, April 1 at approximately noon, MCSO’s Communication Center received a call of a stuck vehicle.

The female reporting party advised she was following directions on her GPS when her vehicle became stuck on a dirt road. She was a tourist from New York.

After dispatch was informed there wouldn’t be a tow company going to the scene, deputies responded and used shovels to dig her vehicle out of the sand, constructed a rock pathway in the sand, and were able to get her vehicle back to a paved road.
