    During the investigation, it was learned that a 46-year-old and a 45-year-old, both residents of Prescott, were stopped in a blue Toyota truck on Moeller Street facing eastbound at the stop sign of Arizona Avenue.  They stated that the Dodge truck drove over the stop sign, a roadway post, and then struck the passenger side of their vehicle.  The passenger in the Toyota was transported from the scene with non-life-threatening injuries to a local hospital and the driver of the Toyota was not injured.
