On Monday, July 4, 2022, at 11:09 p.m., the Lake Havasu City Police Department responded to a single-vehicle crash on Havasu Riviera Parkway near SR 95 in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. When officers arrived, they located a male on the ground in the southbound lanes on Havasu Riviera Parkway with significant injuries and difficulty breathing.

The initial investigation determined that a 2005 Kymco People 150 scooter was traveling northbound on Havasu Riviera Parkway when the driver failed to negotiate a right-hand curve in the roadway and drifted to the left striking the curb and raised median.
