    Passed it not to long ago. A white work truck was also involved. Snowbirds coming in people.

    Sheriff risen was directing traffic. Not a lazy sheriff

  6. Carol Wilson

    Could have been us. People are impatient and pass when not safe to do so. We were almost hit head on by a passing pickup going into Parker. Good thing there was a good shoulder we could swerve onto.

  7. Kinda of question the reporting when the picture tells a different story than the reporter
    Tighten it up Parker News….

    Hard to believe the media these days.. they don’t even know the difference between a fifth and bumper pull and it’s still hooked up

  17. Kelly Crooks

    Wow! Could still be a 5th wheel. It is possible that it unhooked or snapped. But what does it matter? I hope everyone is ok!

  18. Where were they from? Injuries?

  19. David Davis

    The best tow company in Parker!

    Jeff it’s not an in-depth story, just a quick blip to let people know what happened. We got the point!

  23. Jamie Siroonian

    That’s a bumper pull trailer not a fifthwheel but that sucks

  24. Is there any update on who the people are and their condition? What was the cause of the accident? I passed that truck and trailer when leaving Havasu yesterday. Nothing about the accident was in the Havasu newspaper.

  25. Michelle L Dahinden

    People are nit picky jerks! Thanks for the story….

  26. Michelle L Dahinden

    Yeah…cuz this story is all about the trailer rather then the accident that could kill people. Thanks for pointing that out…..idiot!

    We past shortly after it was closer to Quartzsite and the truck was up on 4 wheels. Yes, it was a tt not a 5th w. A young lady was out brushes glass off of her. He either had a blowout or lost it or a severe sway that he/she couldn’t correct.
