3 People Killed After Train Strikes Vehicles In Arizona

Mohave County Sheriff's Office

The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office has said that three people were killed after a train crashed into two vehicles near Kingman in Arizona.

Police responded to the accident on Saturday afternoon in Golden Valley, located about 11 miles (about 18 kilometers) west of Kingman and about 100 miles (about 161 kilometers) away from Las Vegas.

An investigation found that the two vehicles that were hit were stopped at a railroad crossing waiting for an eastbound train to pass. After that train passed, the vehicles began to cross the intersection but did not see a westbound train approaching, authorities said.

The identities of the people that died have not been released by authorities. The investigation is ongoing.
