Two-vehicle Prescott Valley accident sends four to hospital
PRESCOTT VALLEY - A two-vehicle accident sent four people to the hospital Tuesday afternoon, Sgt. Brandon Bonney of the Prescott Valley Police Department said.
Police responded at 1:26 p.m. to Glassford Hill Road and Granville Parkway, where a 2005 Kia sport utility vehicle collided with a 1980 Mercedes.
The SUV driver, a 37-year-old Prescott Valley woman, told police she did not see the Mercedes when she tried to turn left onto Glassford Hill Road from the parkway. The Mercedes was heading north - the other way - on Glassford Hill Road.
Rescue workers took the SUV driver and her two children - ages 5 and 8 - to the East Campus of Yavapai Regional Medical Center for injuries that were not life-threatening, Bonney reported.
The Mercedes driver, a 20-year-old man from out of state, sustained non-life-threatening injuries as well, and was taken to the hospital.
He and his two passengers, an 18-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman, attend Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. The two passengers refused medical treatment.
The accident remained under investigation Tuesday, Bonney said, adding police do not suspect the drivers were impaired.
All the adults wore safety belts, and the children were secured in booster seats.
