PHOENIX – A man was arrested after his girlfriend was killed in a collision between a go-kart and a quad vehicle in northwestern Arizona last week, authorities said.
The crash occurred early Friday in the Mohave County community of Meadview, east of Lake Mead.
Sally Minard, 32, was riding a quad and 40-year-old John Stettler was driving a go-kart when they collided, the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office said.
Minard was taken to a hospital in Las Vegas, where she died from her injuries.
“During the investigation, it was determined that the collision was a criminal act, not just a vehicle collision. The two people involved were in a prior relationship,” the sheriff’s office said in a press release Monday.
Stettler was arrested without incident and booked into the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility on counts of second-degree murder and domestic violence. His bond was set at $300,000.
No other details were made available. The investigation is ongoing.
