PHOENIX – The Arizona Department of Public Safety has identified the five individuals involved in a fatal wrong-way crash that shut down westbound traffic on Interstate 40 near Kingman for several hours Friday morning.

The accident occurred around 9:30 a.m., about 10 miles southwest of Kingman at milepost 36, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

DPS on Saturday identified the Nevadans killed in the crash Friday as 82-year-old Harold Wayne Wickham and 90-year-old Ella Wickham, both of Laughlin.

The other victims were identified as 57-year-old Tsun Tong Chan, 54-year-old Wai Kam Ngai and 21-year-old Ching Kwong.

DPS said Harold Wickham was driving an eastbound sedan in the westbound lanes when it collided with the other car and that he died at a hospital. The other victims died at the scene.

The impacted area was the main route for travelers heading from northern Arizona to California.
