A one-car crash sent four people to hospitals around noon Wednesday when a vehicle went off the side of the road and fell 500 feet into a canyon near the top of Mingus Mountain on Highway 89A, a Central Yavapai Fire spokesman said.

The four occupants - two adult women and two girls, 9 and 11 years old - were found standing on the highway when CYFD arrived, said Battalion Chief Brad Davis. The two children and one adult were classified as having life-threatening injuries. Everyone was taken by ground ambulance to Yavapai Regional Medical Center hospitals - the girls to the East campus, the women to the West, Davis said

The weather kept medical helicopters grounded, he added.

There was snow on the side of the roadway, and it was apparent that the vehicle had rolled several times, he said.

Davis said it was not snowing when they arrived on scene, but the road surface was wet.

Two fire engines, a battalion chief and two LifeLine ambulances with a supervisor responded from the "back" or north side of Prescott Valley, he said.

Arizona Department of Public Safety officers responded and are still investigating the possible cause of the accident, a DPS spokesman said.
