A Prescott man could face charges of 2nd degree murder, among others, in a rear-end collision Tuesday that killed one woman and injured another woman and an infant in Prescott Valley.

Hayley Stevens, 19, of Dewey, suffered life-threatening injuries in the crash. Emergency personnel treated her at the scene and transported her to Yavapai Regional Medical Center, where she was later pronounced dead, said Prescott Valley Police spokesman Brandon Bonney.

Bonney said preliminary investigation showed that a white 2004 Dodge Neon driven by a 46-year-old woman was stopped at the light at Highway 89A and Robert Road in Prescott Valley. She had two passengers in the car, Stevens, and a 1 1/2-year-old child. In front of them was another vehicle, a 2013 Ford Focus just beginning to accelerate away from the light.

Witnesses reported that a 2005 Jeep Liberty then struck the back of the Neon at highway speeds with no braking, Bonney said, causing the Neon to spin several times and collide with the Focus.

The Jeep, driven by Kris Raymond McClain, 49, of Prescott, continued to the southeast portion of the intersection after the collision.

The driver of the Neon was transported to YRMC East with serious injuries. The infant went by Native Air to Phoenix Children's Hospital, also with serious injuries. Bonney said the child was properly restrained in a car seat. The driver of the Ford Focus was not injured.

McClain was transported to YRMC East campus and later flown to a Phoenix area hospital with serious injuries. Bonney said police investigated him for possible impairment as he reportedly admitted to using both marijuana and methadone for medical reasons within the past 24 hours. It is not known if McClain had a medical marijuana card, Bonney said.

McClain could face charges of 2nd degree murder, three counts of aggravated assault, three counts of endangerment and two DUI related charges in the collision, Bonney said.
