Police Report: Head-on collision critically injures one
Two vehicles collided head-on near Highway 89 and Pioneer Parkway Sunday afternoon, critically injuring one person and causing lesser injuries to some of the others involved.
"There was a serious injury accident shortly before 2 p.m.," said Sgt. Georgia Hayter of the Prescott Police Department. "It was a head-on collision. There were two people in the southbound car, and four in the northbound car, two adults and two children."
Hayter said the driver of the northbound vehicle went by helicopter to the Flagstaff Medical Center to receive treatment for severe injuries. She said that some of the other people involved in the accident, including the driver of the southbound vehicle, went to Yavapai Regional Medical Center by ambulance, but did not know how many went, or how severe their injuries were.
"The two in the southbound vehicle didn't seem as badly injured; they may have been transported as a precaution," Hayter said. "The highway wasn't closed because of the accident, but drivers did have to detour around it."
The cause of the accident is still under investigation, and further information was unavailable at press time.
