Four-vehicle crash sends pair to hospitals with life-threatening injuries
Two people suffered life-threatening injuries in a four-car accident early Saturday afternoon at the intersection of Highway 69 and Navajo Drive in east Prescott Valley.
Central Yavapai Fire District Battalion Chief David McConnell said a total of six people were injured in the crash, which happened around 1:30 p.m., but he did not have any more information at press time.
Paramedics took a pair of the accident victims to Yavapai Regional Medical Center East while one of those with serious injuries went by helicopter to John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital in Phoenix.
McConnell added that four of the six people suffered minor injuries.
Two cars sustained heavy damage while a pair of others had minor to moderate damage.
Prescott Valley police, three fire engine companies, four ambulances and one helicopter responded to the scene.
McConnell said officers did not shut down traffic on Highway 69 since the accident mainly transpired on the Navajo Drive side of the intersection.
