(18 year old dies as a result of collision)...The single vehicle collision occurred at close to 2:00 pm, Yuma time.
Yuma County Sheriff's say a 2002 Ford Ranger was traveling north on Avenue 3E approaching County 13 1/2 Street. They say for unknown reasons, the Ranger drove off the east side of the roadway. The driver attempted to correct the vehicle's path back onto the roadway, but lost control and the vehicle rolled over. The 18 year old driver, later identified as Ronin Jenkins of Yuma, was ejected from the vehicle. He suffered serious injuries. He was transported to Yuma Regional Medical Center, where he succumbed from the injuries. The incident remains under investigation. They say alcohol does not appear to have been a factor in the collision.
