One man died and a woman was transported to a Phoenix hospital after a vehicle/pedestrian collision on Glassford Hill Road Christmas night.
Prescott Valley Police officers received a call at about 11:41 p.m. December 25 that a man was walking in the roadway on Glassford Hill Road and jumping in front of vehicles. While enroute to investigate, police received further calls stating that the man had been struck by a northbound vehicle and that a second pedestrian had also been struck by a different vehicle.
Investigation revealed that a 38-year-old male was walking in the curb lane of Glassford Hill Road and was hit by a vehicle driven by a 19-year-old female Prescott Valley resident. This collision forced the vehicle into the median. The passenger in that car, the driver’s 21-year-old sister, got out of the vehicle to assist the man that had been struck. She was then struck by a second northbound vehicle driven by an 18-year-old Prescott Valley man who was attempting to avoid striking the male pedestrian.
The passenger who was struck was taken by ambulance to a Phoenix hospital and was listed in stable condition. Both drivers were unhurt. There was no indication of impairment with either driver. The man walking in the road was pronounced dead on the scene.
Names have not been released pending notification of next of kin. Glassford Hill Road was closed for approximately six hours for the on-scene investigation.
