Chino Valley Police near midnight on Sunday, July 21, arrested a local teen, 19, on charges of criminal speed and reckless driving after he crashed his pickup into a ditch on M A Perkins Rd.

The incident highlights for Chino Valley resident Clyde Marshall the need for a change on the road. Marshall spoke to the Chino Valley Town Council on July 23 with safety concerns about what he considers a dangerous corner on the road. Marshall wants 400 yards of M A Perkins Trail chip sealed to "eliminate the need for the kids to see how fast they can go around the corner," and to mitigate a dust problem.

Chino Valley Police reports state that a Yavapai County Sheriff's deputy at about 11:30 p.m. on July 21 noticed a pickup traveling at 81 mph on Highway 89 near Road 2 North and attempted to stop the driver.

The driver turned off the highway and the deputy requested assistance from Chino Valley Police to locate him.

A Chino Valley officer found the pickup a short while later, with another pickup attempting to pull him out of the ditch.

The driver told the officer he had consumed a "couple of beers," and that he had not seen the deputy trying to stop him on the highway. He said he had taken a turn too fast prior to crashing his truck in the ditch, the report stated.

Officers booked the teen into Yavapai County Jail on the criminal speed and reckless driving charges. Additional charges of DUI could follow pending blood sample results. Chino Valley Police Lt. Vince Schaan said the charges would likely all be misdemeanors.

Police also cited the man's male passenger on charges of underage consumption, the report stated.

Marshall said the accident could have been worse.

"The truck fish tailed all around until he went straight off the side of the road and into the fence," Marshall said. "If he would have gone over this way just a few more feet, he would have rolled."

You remind me of the people who move in next to an established airport and then say it's too noisy or the planes fly too low and close to your home and expect them to do something about it.
There are many of us here living on dirt roads and you don't hear us complaining.

When I read the previous article here about the request to chip seal the road, I have to say I was thinking all the while "is this a joke"... I couldn't even believe the article was real! I didn't comment because it just seemed so petty. But now they have a second run in the CV media? If you move to a rural, horse property land in a small town such as Chino Valley (and you purchase the home with the road being DIRT) then how can YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT DIRT???? Most of us here live on dirt roads and get upset everyday about people driving too fast! We all have to dust our homes alot. Get over it. Money should be going to much more needed issues. Can't you people just put in a dirt speed bump like other neighborhoods with this problem do?

Why don't we protect our children of Chino Valley and put in a sidewalk on 1 East from 2 North to Center St. and then to the High School? Yesterday I couldn't count the kids running down our road for track, I'm guessing, and not a one of you slowed down as you drove around these kids. But I'm sure Clyde's problem is a much bigger one..........NOT!!

How many more ways will Mr. Clyde Marshall conceive in his attempt to have the road paved by his house? Next he will claim paving the road will prevent the Martians from invading. He bought in the area unpaved, he closed escrow while the road was unpaved. If he really wants the road paved, he can pay for it himself.

Isn't this the same guy from the valley that was whining about all the dust on the dirt roads a few days ago?
