Chain Reaction Accident in Bullhead City Sends Three to Hospital
Bullhead City, Arizona—Three people were transported to a hospital after a semi-truck failed to stop at a red light Monday morning, resulting in a chain reaction accident. Emergency crews were called to Highway 95 and Riverview Drive at about 7:00 a.m.
The semi-truck was southbound on Highway 95 when its brakes failed. The driver, Sekou M. Kenneh, age 42 of Minnesota, attempted to stop at a red light, according to Bullhead City Police Department spokeswoman Emily Fromelt. Mr. Kenneh alerted other motorists by sounding his truck’s horn.
The semi was unable to avoid hitting a black Chrysler 300, forcing it into a white Ford Expedition. The semi then crashed into a block wall at the Colorado Place parking lot.
The driver and passenger of the Chrysler, as yet unidentified, were transported by ambulance to Western Arizona Regional Medical Center for treatment of their injuries. The driver of the Ford Expedition sought medical treatment at the hospital later.
Kenneh was cited for operating an unsafe vehicle and failure to stop at a red light.
We wish all those who were injured in this accident speedy recoveries.
