Correction on three-vehicle accident in Camp Verde

The Camp Verde Marshal's Office has released a correction to show that one driver was cited for a three-vehicle accident, but not the driver originally reported as the one at fault.

The report showed that a three-vehicle Camp Verde collision occurred Nov. 26 on SR 260 at General Crook Trail. The investigation found the driver of vehicle #1, a Honda Accord driven by 52-year-old Mary McDowall was stopped at the stop sign on General Crook Trail and SR 260. McDowall turned right onto SR 260, when vehicle #2, a Hyundai Elantra driven by a 17-year-old girl collided with her. Vehicle #2 then veered off to the left across both east bound traffic lanes of SR 260 and collided with the semi trailer of vehicle #3, a freightliner tractor trailer rig driven by 53-year-old Enrique Gonzales. Vehicle #3 was westbound on SR 260 in the left turn lane for General Crook Trail when vehicle #2 impacted him. McDowall was issued a citation for failure to yield from a stop sign.

It was originally reported that the 17-year-old had been cited.
