Prescott Valley Police continue to investigate a two-vehicle accident that occurred at the intersection of Highway 69 and Navajo Drive on Monday morning.

Olis Dean Farley, 77, of Mayer is currently at John C. Lincoln hospital in Phoenix for abdominal injuries, lower back pain and a laceration to the right side of his face, police said Tuesday.

Farley was driving a 1990 Oldsmobile west on Highway 69 and attempted to turn left onto Navajo Drive. Peter Hollowell, 44, of Prescott struck Farley's vehicle with his 1992 Chevy half-ton pickup.

Hollowell's vehicle was towing a dual-axle, flatbed trailer, which had a 1963 International pickup as well as other assorted vehicle parts on it. After striking the Oldsmobile, the Chevy pickup and its trailer separated and struck the traffic light pole on the southeast corner of the intersection.

The Oldsmobile had severe passenger-side damage.

An ambulance took Hollowell to Yavapai Regional Medical Center East for non-life threatening injuries, where doctors treated and released him.

Police do not think that impairment was a factor. The investigation is ongoing.
