MIRACULOUS OUTCOME TO DEADLY ROLLOVER. STARK REMINDER THAT SEATBELTS SAVE LIVES.
On Saturday July 9, 2022, around 3pm Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to a single vehicle roll over on Iron Springs Road. The vehicle failed to navigate a curve safely and went on the shoulder of the road before striking some large granite boulders and finally rolling over.
Deputies confirmed that the seatbelt was in the locked-out position indicating that it was on at the time of the accident. “I’m confident that that if this person wasn’t wearing the seatbelt, they would not have survived the accident. This is a stark reminder that seatbelts save lives”, said YCSO Sergeant Lewis.
YCSO will continue doing speed details on Iron Springs Road as well as other County roadways with a focus on seatbelt enforcement, reminding citizens to Slow Down and Buckle Up!
