We were stuck on hwy 63 last night outside of Bullhead 40 miles of the Hoover Dam heading towards Vegas. I wondered if there was a report on the crash. There was several ambulances and a helicopter on the sceen. We were told everyone died in the fire. A car and a moving van type vehicle was involed, rolled over in the ditch on the side of the rode and burned to bits. Anyone got any news if there was any survivors or what happened?The long line of stopped cars was then back ended by an old man in a truck. Write with any news. Thanks

This is in today's Las Vegas Review Journal:

"Four people were killed in a fiery two-vehicle collision reported about 10:30 p.m. on U.S. 93 about 30 miles north of Kingman. The Department of Public Safety reported that a northbound vehicle plowed into a southbound vehicle trying to exit the highway by turning onto Pierce Ferry Road.

The victims' names were not released."

We saw the crash, we arrived 2 cars after the old man in the truck rear ended all of the stopped cars, we turned around and went on some dirt roads to try to get around the crash and we ended up at pierce ferry road which was where the main first crash was. We saw a motor home on it's side burnt to pieces & an SUV on it's side & we saw one person dead on the side of the road next to a cross from a previous accident, 1 lady dead in an ambulance that was parked there for a while and 1 person taken by Helicopter back to Las Vegas. We were about 50 feet from the main crash when we got to Pierce Ferry Rd & HWY 93. It appeared the motor home T-Boned the SUV that was trying to cross the freeway, but I do not know for sure. One of the vehicles, possibly the motor home was towing a small boat, I would say it was no more than 17 feet in size, it was destroyed and in the middle of the highway off of the trailer. I only saw 2 dead people and the people talking in the area said 2 had died, not 4 but I have not read about this crash anywhere so I cannot be sure.

My Family and I were vacationing in Vegas and were on our way back to Vegas after spending the day at the Grand Canyon. We were the second vehical to stop after the accident. We hit all of the debris left on the road and stoped. We helped as much as we could. I'm just sorry that we couldn't do more. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those involved in this accident.

Ironically, a white metal cross had been erected by the road from an accident in the distant ? past. The cross had been covered by plastic flowers, and those had faded over the years. Now, the area is charred, the cross is leaning way over, and the flowers have melted. I hope that the memorial to all of those killed in this tragic spot will be replaced.

My husband (Waylon W) and I along with my family happened upon the accident shortly after it happened. I thought I would add a little to what he wrote earlier. The "motorhome" in question was actually a full size extended van, and the SUV, I believe was an Infiniti. The "boat" was the extended part of the van that had come detached. The Infiniti turned in front of the van and they burst in to flames. The lady was alive for a short time, but died before the medivac could evacuate her. There were 3 other deaths as well.

My husband and I were wanting to more about the people who died and their families. If anyone who knows them and would like to share we would appreciate it.

The suv was north bound, headed towards Vegas. The van was south bound, and crossed the north bound lane headed onto Peirce Ferry Rd, the suv then struck the van. The "boat" was actually a fiberglass top of the van, which came off in the accident. The woman Karla W spoke of was found inside the fiberglass top, and was a local of the area, without any immediate family. She had a male companion in her vehicle, who was not a permanent local. He was ejected and died. The suv had two occupants, one that was ejected and died, the other was not ejected but was doa as well. I am unsure of their identities and locales, but all persons except for the body still in the vehicle, were identified by DPS that night. While the crews were attempting to revive the woman, another accident occurred at the end of the traffic line, as previously mentioned. That accident resulted in two injuries, which were subsequently flown out on the chopper, after the woman was pronounced dead.

All in all, a rather tragic event that could have been prevented if the van (obviously) had not turned in front of the suv, and if the suv had not been traveling at a high rate of speed, which is all to common on that stretch of Hwy 93.

The two people in the infinity SUV were my borther(Igor) and my sister-in-law(Natasha), who was 3 months pregnant with a baby boy. This tragedy affected all of my family. Until now, I do not know any details because the police still haven't released the bodies to us. They couldn't identify the bodies at first because they were burnt so badly. It would be appreciated if a witness could give us all of the details that they witnessed, so that we have as much information as possible. Thank you for your help.

I'm sorry for your loss. You and your family have my sincerest condolences.

All I can tell you that hasn't already been said is that I'm sure your sister-in-law died instantly and did not suffer. From what I saw, I think your brother did not suffer either. I hope this can give you some measure of comfort in your time of grief.

Polina,

I met Igor when he did work for my company and I can not tell you how very, very sorry I am about your loss. I talked to him approx. one month before his death and he told me about the new house and how very happy he is.

My co-worker and I cried many tears about these tragic deaths and words can not express my sadness...

I am so sorry about your loss. Your brother did some computer consulting for my company. He knew everything there was about computers. A very nice guy! I never met his wife and he spoke well of her.

My son was involved in a one car collition on April 20th on Highway 93 at mile marker 39.8. No one knows what happened. They say he wasn't speeding but the next thing they saw was dirt. Someone called me from his cell phone right when it happened. I would like to know who that person was and if anyone could shed some light onto what did happen. Please feel free to call me or e-mail me. Wahingtonhuskyfan@gmail.com

Thanks Laura

People are idiots and those that don't know how to drive on the highway need to stay off and travel via air plane. People need to focus and drive more carefully especially when driving on the highway.
