Prevatt is also wanted by the Arizona Department of Corrections for parole violations. A fugitive parole warrant has been issued.

Background –

At the indicated date and time, YCSO deputies were dispatched to a truck rollover on N Mitchell Lane in Paulden. Upon arrival in the area, a 16-year-old girl approached deputies saying her friend was injured and needed help. The victims had been given a ride from the crash site back to their car by a Good Samaritan. Inside that vehicle, Deputies saw another 16-year-old girl laying across the seat, bleeding and possibly having a seizure. Another 15-year-old girl, also a passenger, was present. While EMS personnel treated the trio of victims, deputies learned the driver of the truck, Grant Prevatt, fled the scene following the collision.

The victims indicated that earlier they met at a house in Paulden and got into a truck driven by Prevatt with another male adult passenger. Prevatt drove the truck in an erratic fashion, ‘fishtailing,’ etc., when the truck slid sideways and rolled. The teen who sustained serious injuries was not wearing a seat belt.

After the collision, Prevatt kicked out the windshield and told them he was a felon and needed to run away. A good Samaritan saw the wreck and stopped to give aid and drove the girls back to their car as they were intending to go to the hospital. That is the time deputies and fire personnel arrived.

Deputies eventually located the truck and the adult passenger, a friend of Prevatt, who also confirmed Prevatt was the driver. The male passenger was complaining of chest pain and transported to the hospital.

Deputies contacted the injured teen at the hospital. She was in stable condition at that time.
