PRESCOTT - Paramedics airlifted two Prescott drivers to separate hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries from a Friday afternoon rollover on Highway 89 south of Perkins Drive.

Prescott Police Department Lt. Andy Reinhardt said that at about 3:30 p.m. a silver Suzuki was going north on Highway 89 north of Pioneer Parkway when it crossed the centerline into oncoming traffic and hit a southbound Honda Element.

The impact from the collision flipped both vehicles into a vacant field on the west side of Highway 89 near the Prescott Airport.

Bryce Walter, the 17-year-old driver of the Suzuki, went to Flagstaff Medical Center for precautionary reasons with unknown, non-life-threatening injuries.

Joan Horn, 75-year-old driver of the Honda, went to John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital in Phoenix where she is in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.

Both vehicles had just one occupant and no other injuries occurred.

Police redirected traffic on Highway 89 for close to three hours, until 6:15 p.m., Reinhardt said.
