Minor Traffic Crash at Arizona Avenue Involving Possible Medical Issue

Friday morning, at just after 7 am, officers responded to a call of a minor two vehicle crash in the area of Arizona Avenue and Moeller Street in Prescott.  When they arrived they found the driver of a Dodge diesel truck unresponsive behind the wheel.  Officers and paramedics immediately provided first aid and life saving measures but unfortunately the driver died on the scene.  He was identified as a 50 year old Prescott resident.

During the investigation it was learned that a 46 year old and a 45 year old, both residents of Prescott, were stopped in a blue Toyota truck on Moeller Street facing eastbound at the stop sign of Arizona Avenue.  They stated that the Dodge truck drove over the stop sign, a roadway post and then struck the passenger side of their vehicle.  The passenger in the Toyota was transported from the scene with non-life threatening injuries to a local hospital and the driver of the Toyota was not injured.

Preliminary information indicates that the driver of the Dodge truck may have had a medical emergency prior to the collision but it is unknown at this time.

This investigation will remain open pending the results of an autopsy.

The intersection was closed for a short period of time while officers conducted their investigation.  The next of kin of the deceased driver has been notified.
