One person suffered minor injuries after a two-vehicle collision in Prescott Monday. First-responders were called to the scene on Montezuma Street just south of Merritt Avenue at around 8 a.m. When officers arrived they found a brown 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee on its rooftop and the driver, a 65-year-old Prescott resident, suspended by her seatbelt in the driver’s seat. Officers were able to safely remove her from the vehicle. She suffered minor injuries. The other vehicle was a 2008 silver Mazda passenger vehicle driven by an 18-year-old Prescott resident, who was not injured. Officers say both vehicles were traveling southbound on Montezuma Street when the Jeep slowed to make a right turn and into a parking lot. The driver of the Mazda failed to control his vehicle and collided with the passenger side of the Jeep, causing it to roll onto its roof. The driver of the Mazda was cited for causing the accident.
