BULLHEAD CITY ACCIDENT
Arizona teenager dies from injuries in crash
A teenager badly injured in a Jan. 7 traffic accident in Bullhead City, Ariz., died Saturday at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center in Las Vegas.
The victim was identified as Austin Kennon, 14, of Bullhead City.
Police spokeswoman Emily Montague said the Mohave County attorney’s office will determine whether Kennon’s brother, Michael, 17, will be cited or prosecuted in the head-on collision.
Montague said the older boy was driving on the wrong side of Goldrush Road when his 2002 Daewoo Nubira struck an oncoming 2002 Oldsmobile just south of Ramar Road.
Montague said Michael Kennon also was uninsured.
The Kennon boys, their 11-year-old brother, Jim, and their father, Tyrone, 41, required hospital treatment for their injuries along with the two occupants of the Oldsmobile, Tonee Wheeler 19, and Ashley Vincent, 17, both of Bullhead City.
