Coca-Cola Truck Sideswipes Jeep, Smashes into Motorhome in Star Valley
Star Valley, Arizona—Four people were injured, one of them seriously, when a Coca-Cola pickup truck heading into Star Valley crossed the centerline on SR-260 and sideswiped a Jeep Wrangler. The pickup then smashed into a 32-foot motorhome that was behind the Jeep. The Jeep and motorhome were traveling together, with the family’s wife driving the Jeep while the husband drove the motorhome in which their 21-year-old daughter was a passenger. The Hellsgate Fire and Payson Fire Departments responded.
The driver of the Coca-Cola truck was pinned inside. Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to extricate him. He was transported by air to a Valley hospital in life-threatening condition. He reportedly has undergone multiple surgeries and is expected to recover.
The family was transported to Banner Payson Medical Center where they were treated and released. The daughter was treated for a leg injury she received. As yet, the identities of those involved in the accident have not been released.
We wish the victims swift and full recoveries from their injuries.
