PRESCOTT VALLEY - A medical condition affecting a Chino Valley man apparently triggered a six-vehicle accident Saturday that sent him and a Seligman woman to the hospital, Prescott Valley Police Sgt. Brandon Bonney reported.

Police did not identify the medical condition that might have affected Gary Jones, 62, when the pile-up occurred around 12:30 p.m. on Glassford Hill Road just south of Granville Parkway North.

Investigators said Jones was driving a 2002 Ford F250 pickup north on Glassford Hill Road when it struck a 1996 Volkswagen station wagon driven by a 55-year-old Seligman woman.

The impact pushed the station wagon into a 2005 Chevy 1500 pickup driven by a 52-year-old Prescott man. The pickup in turn struck a 2005 Chevy Impala driven by a 23-year-old Chino Valley man.

The Impala then hit a 2010 Chevy sport utility vehicle driven by a 62-year-old Prescott man.

Debris from the initial collision struck a 2010 Ford SUV driven by a 69-year-old Prescott Valley man.

Jones was taken to Yavapai Regional Medical Center for medical evaluation, and the Seligman woman was taken to YRMC with life-threatening injuries and later flown to a trauma center in the Phoenix area. She was later released from the hospital.

Bonney said police await completion of the investigation before determining whether Jones will face charges.
