Three-car accident injures two

CAMP VERDE -- Just before noon May 6, Camp Verde Marshal's deputies were dispatched to a three-vehicle accident that appears to have been caused when a tire blew on a pickup just west of Hayfield Draw.

A 2005 Dodge Ram pickup had the flat, according to the Camp Verde Marshal's report. The blowout caused the pickup pulling a trailer to veer into oncoming traffic. The Ram struck the driver's right side of a 2011 Tahoe.

Subsequently, a third vehicle, a 2010 Chevy HHR collided with the trailer of the Dodge Ram. The driver of the small vehicle was also transported to Verde Valley Medical Center for possible head, chest and leg injuries.
