Unfortunately, this stretch of road is no stranger to serious and deadly crashes.

ABC15 investigators recently did a series of reports on the dangerous roadway.

The Arizona State Transportation Board has also approved safety improvements to US 93 between Wickenburg and Kingman, including widening some of the highway to four lanes and installing centerline rumble strips on most of the two-lane section.
