Prescott Valley police said one woman died and three people were injured in a four-vehicle collision Saturday on Highway 69 at Navajo Drive in Prescott Valley.

At 1:20 p.m., a white Chrysler 2000 four-door sedan driven by Ellis Holland, 82, traveling east on Highway 69 turned left onto Navajo and collided at the intersection with a green 2007 Kia sports utility vehicle that Linda Hazelton, 56, was driving west on Highway 69, said Sgt. Art Askew, spokesman for the Prescott Valley Police Department.

After the car and SUV collided they struck two other cars stopped on Navajo Drive and Highway 69 facing north.

Paramedics treated four people at the scene and took three to local hospitals for further treatment.

Doctors at Yavapai Regional Medical Center East pronounced Margaret R. Holland, 82, the passenger in the Chrysler car dead from injuries she received during the collision.

Paramedics with Native Air flew Gloria Franklin, 81, to John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital in Phoenix for further treatment for rib fractures and a collapsed lung, Askew said. Franklin remains in stable condition in the intensive care unit, according to an ICU nurse.

Doctors at YRMC East treated Hazelton for a broken hand and released her from the hospital, Askew said.

Ellis Holland sustained a minor injury.

Officers continue to investigate the cause of the collision and ask anyone who witnessed it and did not speak with an officer to call Corp. Morris at (928) 772-5132 or Sgt. Woods at (928) 772-5104.
