Officers learned that a four door sedan, driven by a 17 year old female of Prescott Valley had been traveling westbound on State Route 89A, when it left the roadway and crossed the center median for an unknown reason, colliding with a pick-up truck traveling eastbound on State Route 89A.
The pick-up truck was occupied by a male and a female both approximately 68 years of age, believed to be residents of Chino Valley.

The removal and treatment of all three patients was expedited by a cooperative effort from the Prescott Fire Department, the Central Yavapai Fire District, the Chino Valley Fire District, Lifeline Ambulance, Guardian Air Medical and Native Air Medical. All three patients were flown from the scene for further treatment. The driver of the sedan was flown to a valley area hospital with serious injuries. Her current condition is unknown. The driver and passenger of the truck were flown to Flagstaff area hospitals, also with serious injuries. Their current condition is also not known.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation. Traffic in both eastbound and westbound lanes was slowed and able to pass by the accident in one lane on each direction. The roadway was fully opened in both directions at approximately 12:20 P.M.
