Collision at Fain and Hwy 69 injures 3, child restraints protect kids
Three people were treated for minor injuries they sustained in a three-vehicle collision Thursday morning in Prescott Valley, said Cpl. Jennifer Miller, spokeswoman for the Prescott Police Department.
At 8:57 a.m., officers answered a call about a collision at the intersection of State Route 69 and Fain Road. Witnesses at the scene told officers that a green 1996 Chevrolet Blazer driven by Heather Hoit, 24, of Humboldt was traveling southbound on State Route 69 when she made a left turn toward Fain Road and struck a silver 2010 Honda 4-door sedan driven by Carl Warner, 65, of Prescott, who was heading northbound on State Route 69, Miller said.
The impact forced Warner's car into a green 1996 3/4-ton Dodge pickup truck driven by Charles Stout, 57, of Mayer, who was stopped at the traffic light on Fain Road, facing westbound, Miller said.
Emergency medical services treated Hoit and her 2-year-old and 5-year-old children at the scene, and later LifeLine Ambulance took them to Yavapai Regional Medical Center where they were treated for minor injuries and released, Miller said.
Officers said no one else involved in the crash reported any injuries, Miller said.
Hoit's children had been properly restrained in her sports utility vehicle, Miller said, adding that none of the drivers showed any signs of impairment.
Officers cited Hoit for failure to yield while making a left turn, Miller said.
