The Kingman Police Department responded this morning at approximately 7:40 a.m., to a crash involving a school bus at the intersection of E. Hualapai Mountain Rd., Railroad St./Mission Blvd. The investigation revealed that a gray sedan driven by a 78 year old Kingman man was traveling eastbound on Hualapai Mountain Rd. when he failed to stop at a red light and struck the rear passenger side tire of a school bus. The school bus was crossing E. Hualapai Mountain Rd. at a green light from southbound Railroad St. onto Mission Blvd. The Kingman Unified School District school bus was carrying approximately 20 middle school-aged students. One student complained of injuries and was picked up by a parent. The remaining students were transferred to another bus to get to school. Glare from the sun is a factor in the crash. There is no indication of impairment. The gray sedan was towed from the scene. The 78 year old man was cited for failure to stop for a red light. Part of the roadway was closed for approximately one hour.
