Six injured in 3-vehicle crash on Highway 69
Six people injured Sunday night in a collision on Highway 69 were taken to hospitals in Phoenix, Flagstaff and Prescott Valley, said Cpl. Jennifer Miller, Prescott Police Department spokeswoman.
At 7:05 p.m., officers answered a call about a three-vehicle collision at the intersection of Highway 69 and StoneRidge Drive. Reportedly, a white 1991 Chevrolet pickup truck driven by Terri Dannen, 55, of Prescott Valley was traveling eastbound on Highway 69 when she allegedly failed to stop for a red light and struck a dark-colored 2006 Chevrolet Tahoe driven by Marcie Madsen, 46, of Prescott Valley, according to Miller.
Madsen had been making a southbound turn onto StoneRidge Drive from Highway 69. The force of the collision caused her sports utility vehicle to roll, and it came to rest against a third vehicle that was northbound on StoneRidge Drive at the time, Miller said.
Two injured people were airlifted to Flagstaff Medical Center for further treatment, and a 9-year-old child was airlifted to Phoenix Children's Hospital, Miller said. All three airlifted patients were listed as being in serious condition.
Three other injured people were treated for their injuries at Yavapai Regional Medical Center's East campus.
The crash is still under investigation by the Prescott Valley Police Department's Traffic Division, Miller said.
