SEMI ROLLOVER, KINGMAN — At about 12:10 p.m. Sept. 19, a truck carrying used tires rolled onto its side as it turned onto Beale Street after exiting Interstate 40. The crash caused the load of tires to be dumped on the roadway, said Deputy Chief Rusty Cooper of the Kingman Police Department. Several vehicles stopped at the traffic light in the opposite lanes were struck by rolling tires, he said. The truck driver, a 44-year-old Kingman man, suffered injuries that required him to be taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center, where he was treated and released. The crash caused the intersection of Beale Street and I-40 to be restricted for about three hours, Cooper said, leading to significant traffic backups onto I-40 and U.S. Highway 93/Beale Street into Kingman. The driver of the truck was issued a citation for failure to control speed to avoid a crash. The Arizona Department of Public Safety, ADOT Enforcement and the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office assisted with the investigation and clean-up efforts.
