Smart Car vs. Dump Truck

A white micro Smart Car plowed into the side of a tandem dump truck at the intersection of South Page Springs Road and Louise Drive, the entrance to the Melglo Estates in Cornville. The two-passenger vehicle struck the much larger dump truck about 10 a.m. Monday at the subdivision entrance, about a mile north of Cornville Road. An adult woman driver was taken by ambulance to the Cottonwood hospital, but rescue crews say it appears she suffered non-life threatening injuries. The big trucks tank leaked diesel fuel after the accident. Camp Verde Fire's Haz-Mat Truck was dispatched as well as the Yavapai County Roads Department which brought a load of sand to help control the leak. YCSO deputies were called to investigate and help with traffic control as the south bound lane of Page Springs Road was closed. Courtesy Verde Valley FD
