YUCCA, AZ - A vehicle accident that occurred Sunday morning in Yucca, Arizona left one truck in flames and three individuals in serious condition.
According to Mohave County Sheriff's Office, 55-year-old Bullhead City resident Lance Arbogast was driving westbound on a gas line road with his 11-year-old grandson.
As Arbogast crossed S. Butch Cassidy Road, he collided with 57-year-old Francine Virginia Armendariz, a resident of Yucca.

All three individuals were airlifted to Las Vegas trauma centers, according to a news release.
They are said to be in serious condition but stable as of early Monday afternoon.
