On Thursday afternoon in Bullhead City, Arizona, an auto accident happened that took the life of one female individual.
The crash occurred at shortly before 3:30 p.m., just south of the Mohave Crossing shopping center on Highway 95 near Central Avenue, in southern Bullhead City.
Authorities say that witnesses reported the car wreck to Bullhead City Police Department and Bullhead City Fire Department personnel, indicating that a southbound Isuzu Rodeo crossed the center lane that divides traffic, smashing into a northbound GMC work truck, which is owned by David Barrios Landscaping LLC, of Bullhead City, that was pulling a trailer with a Bobcat loading machine on top.
The force of the impact crushed the front end of the Rodeo and caused the vehicle to be spun, inflicting heavy damage to the truck as well.
The driver of the Isuzu was pronounced dead on the scene by emergency personnel. Two passengers in the vehicle had to be extricated from the vehicle. They were flown to medical centers in Las Vegas, the extent of their injuries being unknown at this time.
The driver of the truck apparently walked away from the accident, but was later taken to Western Arizona Regional Medical Center for what are believed to be minor injuries.
Police suspect that none of those traveling in the Isuzu had been wearing their seat belts.
The investigation into why the Isuzu crossed into oncoming traffic is ongoing.

Why the driver of the Isuzu caused the accident is unknown at this time, and this is really the main question that investigators will have.
