A medical condition appears to have been the cause of a six-vehicle crash Saturday that sent three people to hospitals.
Prescott Valley Police spokesman Brandon Bonney said emergency personnel responded to the crash on Glassford Hill Road just south of Granville Parkway North at about 12:30 Saturday.
Officers found that a 2002 Ford F250 pickup truck driven by a 62-year-old Chino Valley man struck a 1996 Volkswagen staton wagon driven by a 55-year-old Seligman woman. The impact pushed the Volkswagen into a 2005 Chevy 1500 truck driven by a Prescott man, and the Chevy struck a 2005 Chevy Impala driven by another Chino Valley man, with his wife, and children, ages 2 and 7, in the vehicle.
Bonney said the Impala struck a 2010 Chevy SUV driven by a Prescott man and his wife, and finally, debris from the initial collision hit a 2010 Ford SUV driven by a Prescott Valley man and his wife.
The Chino Valley man whose vehicle started the pileup appeared to have a medical condition that caused the crash, Bonney said. He was transported to Yavapai Regional Medical Center for evaluation.
The Seligman woman suffered serious injuries, Bonney said. She was transported to Yavapai Regional Medical Center and later airlifted to a Phoenix area trauma center.
Bonney said at last report the Seligman woman had reportedly been released from the hospital.
