Four occupants of this vehicle went to the hospital Wednesday with non-life threatening injuries after they struck a truck that attempted to turn in front of them on Highway 89.

Four people went to the hospital after a two-vehicle collision in Chino Valley Wednesday morning.

Chino Valley Fire crews and police responded at about 8:30 a.m. to the accident in the 3500 block of North Highway 89, between Roads 3 and 4 North.

Both vehicles were traveling northbound, said Chino Valley Police Lt. Vince Schaan, when a ¾ ton dually pickup truck pulled toward the highway shoulder, slowed and attempted to make a U turn. The other vehicle, a mid-sized SUV, struck the truck on the front left side as it attempted the U turn.

"It was a very heavy impact," said Chino Valley Fire District spokesman Rob Zazueta . "It caused the SUV to roll. The truck had one passenger that had no injuries and he refused transport, but the vehicle that was traveling northbound had four passengers."

Life Line Ambulance transported all four of the SUV passengers to Yavapai Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, Zazueta said. He said the fact that all five of the people involved in the accident wore seatbelts played a major role in the outcome.

"Because they wore seatbelts, and (the SUV) was a newer vehicle that had side curtain airbags, which were all deployed, they're here today to tell the story.

The accident caused the closure of Highway 89 for about an hour, and police detoured traffic off the highway through side streets. Three Chino Valley Fire engines, three ambulances and a battalion chief responded to the accident, Zazueta said.

Schaan said police cited the driver of the pickup for an unsafe turn.
