Kingman, Arizona: Mohave County Medical Examiner’s Office releases identity of a local man who was found died inside pickup truck along a wash on Wednesday, August 3rd, 2022.
According to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office, at 5:30 p.m., deputies responded to the area of Blake Ranch Road and Stephan Road for a report of a vehicle in a wash with a deceased subject inside.
The reporting party advised that as he was travelling through the intersection, he observed the vehicle approximately 40 yards off of the roadway into the wash.
The reporting party reported that the area had received heavy rain a few hours prior to finding the vehicle.
Deputies observed the GMC truck was completely submerged in the sand and a male subject was located deceased inside the vehicle.
With the assistance of fire personnel, the deceased male was extracted from the vehicle and conveyed to the Mohave County Medical Examiner.
According to the Mohave County Medical Examiner, the male subject was identified as Steven Jerome Tucker, 64 of Kingman.
The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind everyone that crossing a flooded roadway is extremely dangerous and sometimes deadly.
Over the last week, our monsoon weather has created hazardous flooding in several areas of Mohave County.
It is never safe to drive or walk into flood waters; “Turn Around, Don’t Drown!”
ZachNews and the people of the Colorado River Tri-State communities send our thoughts, prayers that condolences to the family and friends of Steven Jerome Tucker.
