Seatbelts prevent roll over injury
LAKE MONTEZUMA -- A driver and passengers avoided injury in single-vehicle rollover on Interstate 17 Wednesday. About noon, Montezuma-Rimrock and Verde Valley Fire District crews were dispatched to a single-vehicle rollover accident in the northbound lanes of I-17 at MP 294 just north of the McGuireville-Cornville interchange.
All the occupants were wearing their seat restraints and were not injured. The driver of the vehicle said he was momentarily distracted and then over-corrected, causing the car to go onto the shoulder and then roll.
