Prescott Valley police are investigating a rollover that killed one person and sent another with apparent serious injuries to a hospital Friday afternoon, Sgt. Brandon Bonney said.

Both the driver and passenger were ejected from the vehicle in an accident that occurred around 2 p.m. Friday at Glassford Hill Road and Spouse Drive, he said. Police reported one person dead at the scene while a medical helicopter took the other person to an unidentified trauma center.

Bonney said police do not know whether the two were wearing seatbelts, and could not identify the make of the vehicle.

While police investigated, the northbound lanes of Glassford Hill Road were closed for at least two hours while the southbound lanes was closed for about an hour.
