Three accidents within about 2 hours sent three people to hospitals Monday morning. One two-vehicle accident at approximately 11 a.m. on Monday injured two people. That accident occurred at the intersection of Navajo and Highway 69.

Emergency personnel transported one patient to Yavapai Regional Medical Center via ambulance, while helicopter crews flew another victim out for treatment.

A witness at the scene said he thought a truck pulling a trailer with another truck on it failed to stop at the light, t-boning a white car. Another woman said she was waiting to turn at the intersection when the accident occurred, but she said it all happened so fast she couldn't tell what caused it. "I'm just now calming down," she said.

Another multi-vehicle accident, at approximately the same time, at Windsong and Highway 69 sent a teen driver to Yavapai Regional Medical Center.

About an hour later, an accident at Pav Way and Windsong sent another man by ambulance to the hospital.
