One person seriously hurt in 3-vehicle accident on Fain Road

One person was flown via medical helicopter to an area hospital with serious injuries after a three-vehicle accident on Fain Road near milepost 285 in Prescott Valley Friday night, Yavapai County Sheriff's Office spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn confirmed Saturday.

D'Evelyn said others were hurt in the wreck, but their injuries are non-life-threatening.

When YCSO and paramedics arrived on the scene in the 7 p.m. hour Friday, they say they found one vehicle on its roof, another on its side, and another in an upright position.

D'Evelyn said he does not know the cause of the accident, but he does believe one particular driver was responsible for it. YCSO expects to issue a full report about the wreck on Monday, D'Evelyn added.

It's not the road, it's morons. For example, last Saturday, we were headed to Payson and took Fain to 69. There were about 4 or 5 of us all in a row, cruising along at 65, when the moron in the front slams on his brakes and does a U-turn! Thing is, if he was going the wrong way, he could've turned around on Lakeshore, which was just ahead by a few feet! He didn't even care about the people behind him slamming on their brakes and burning rubber trying not to hit him. Luckily enough, my husband wasn't following too close, and we were fine, but how stupid can you be to stop in the middle of a highway and flip a U-turn?! Really?!

I am thankful that the injuries were not any worse than reported. But now I wonder ... are any of these other posters those very folks who cry for "smaller government?" This is what you get with smaller government. From what I read, many Arizonans belive each one of us is on his or her own to provide for safely and care. I hope those are inflammatory words of a few and that the majority of us really think there is a place for government and community in our lives here.

Article comment by: The answer is!

There is absolutely no police presence in Prescott or Prescott Valley. Where are the cops and the squad cars. Why don't they write tickets. I have watched cars blatantly run red lights with a squad car sitting at the intersection. I have NEVER seen the policeman stop the driver and write a ticket. Speeding is the norm. Our police departments need to do their job. And to hell with the 'don't tread on me', Arizona frontier mentality crap. It injures, maims and kills people.

Article comment by: everyone is in such a doggone hurry these days

it's not the roads, it's that everyone is in such a hurry these days, and they have to be FIRST in line to get where they are going now. they are passing and not paying attention to "if they are going to make it safley" and then you have drivers that get upset for someone passing them and they speed up (anger issues for bieng last) I am sure a show of hands that everyone has at one point or another been a rude driver. like driving on the right hand lane and going slower just because you want to or not paying attention, ignoring emergency vehicles, won't let someone pass cut in front of someone, not turning on your signal, etc. come on people we need to be safe drivers slow down if you need to be on time leave earlier ok.

Remember the 3 students from Embry Riddle killed on that horrible road? They sure pulled down the memorial crosses real quick! The politicians have the blood on their hands for allowing that insane speed limit. ...

I think they need to have driver's education around here. Bad drivers teaching new drivers to drive bad! It's a never ending cycle.

I guess there have not been enough deaths for them to do something! What is going on around here? Why are these streets being put in without a meidian in the first place? We seem to have enough money to keep doing Rosser over and over! Oh ya, I guess I will hear that this is not Prescott, it is Prescott Valley! Still both cities need to wake up! It may just be your family member next!

Since moving to Prescott from Phoenix almost 6 years ago I've had to really utilize my defensive driving skills to avoid drivers who don't stop for stop signs, fail to use their turn signals and who drift across the yellow centerline, particularly on curves. And they say the traffic in Phoenix is bad. Driving here seems much more dangerous here to me.

PV city manager, mayor, city council. Do you feel responsible for these accidents? You keep choosing projects like dredging fain lake, a synthetic soccer field and a sidewalk instead of working on projects that will make this community safer and more functional. Your priorities are off as well as your ability to make a reasonable decision.

Fain Road is a very dangerous route. I stopped using it several years ago after having to replace 3 windshields because of trucks kicking up rocks.
Even though the posted speed is 65 most drivers are driving much faster with the exception of the ocassional idiot driving much slower which causes others to pass them.
I have had to almost pull off on the shoulder to avoid being hit head on by someone coming the other direction who can't judge distances. It takes longet using the 69 but is much safer.
I bet the driver who caused this accident did something really stupid or was impaired.

1 in 3 chance one of the vehicles would have caused the accident.....The state needs to take this road over, widen it with a medium and some retainment to keep head on's from happening. Does ANYONE know how to drive in this area?
