A multi-vehicle accident closed down Highway 89 in Chino Valley yesterday. Chino Valley Police say the accident happened at around 11 a.m. in the 26-hundred block of North Highway 89. It was there where officers found a Dodge Ram 2500 truck, a Ford F350 truck and a Chevy Silverado towing a fifth-wheel trailer. Witnesses told police the Ram truck drifted into the northbound lanes of traffic and side swiped the Silverado and trailer, then clipped the F350. The F350 left the roadway and flipped over onto the driver side. The Ram also left the highway and came to a stop, upright. All vehicles, except the Silverado, sustained major damage and had to be towed from the scene. The driver of the Ram, a 64-year-old Chino Valley resident, was the only person in the vehicle and had to be extricated out of it by Central Arizona Fire and Medical crews. He sustained moderate injuries and was flown to an area hospital for treatment. He’s in stable condition. The driver of the F350, a 25-year-old man from Chino Valley, was treated for minor injuries.
