According to a report from Cottonwood PD, two 16 year old boys were riding a motorcycle along SR 260 and ran the red light at Rodeo Drive and struck the driver side of a vehicle making a left turn from Rodeo Drive onto northbound State Route 260.

The motorcycle driver from Cottonwood was transported to Verde Valley Medical Center for treatment of injuries. The passenger, who lives in Flagstaff, was flown to Flagstaff Regional Medical Center.
