Westbound 69 was closed temporarily for the accident investigation, it is now open


On Wednesday, October 13, 2021 at approximately 9:06 A.M., Prescott Police Officers responded to a three vehicle rear-end collision on State Route 69 just east of Lowes.  

Through the course of the investigation it was determined that westbound traffic on State Route 69 slowed as a deer attempted to cross the roadway. As traffic slowed, a 2004 Honda Accord driven by a 49 year old Prescott man, failed to slow and struck the rear of a 2013 Acura sedan being operated by a 21 year old Prescott Valley female. The force of the impact caused the Acura to spin into the median as Honda continued west and struck the rear of a Toyota 4runner before coming to rest.

The driver of the Honda sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries and was flown from the scene to a Phoenix area hospital. The driver of the Acura was transported from the scene by lifeline ambulance to YRMC with non life threatening injuries. The driver of the 4runner was not injured. Both the Honda and Acura sustained significant damage and had to be towed from the scene. 

Westbound State Route 69 was closed while emergency personnel rendered aid and so members of the Prescott Police Traffic Safety Section could  investigate the collision.  This collision is still under investigation to determine if impairment was a factor.
