Sedona Fire District was dispatched to 36400 SR 89A near Page Springs Rd. at 4:00 p.m. Saturday afternoon. Upon arrival, our firefighters found a tour jeep that had been
carrying six passengers plus the driver. The jeep had rolled over but came to rest in an upright position.

A small brush and grass fire had been ignited as a result of the accident. All occupants were out of the vehicle. The driver had been removed from the vehicle by people at the accident scene. The driver was transported by helicopter to Flagstaff with serious injuries. Two other occupants were transported by ground ambulance to VVMC in Cottonwood, and four occupants refused treatment or transport.

This accident highlights the importance of wearing seatbelts. Your odds of surviving a rollover accident are greatly increased by wearing your seatbelt.

“Nearly three quarters of people who are ejected from the vehicle in an accident suffer fatal injuries,” said Fire Marshal Jon Davis, “When worn properly, your seatbelt keeps you restrained inside the vehicle.” Rollover accidents account for only three percent of all
motor vehicle accidents but are responsible for 30% of the fatalities.
