During a recent visit to the ADOT office on 6th street, I was reading a poster on the wall that said if a car (or any emergency or police vehicle) is on the side of the road with flashing lights, you should move over to the left as much as possible. Route 260 at Goddard Road has two lanes going each way, so it should have been easy for the pickup to move over one lane. Why did it not do so?

The police aren't looking for speeders anywhere. They're too busy following cars late at night to run their plates to see if they are current. It's all about the money, not protecting citizens. I've seen this happen 2-3 times in Cottonwood, and once in Sedona.

Usually the charges leveled against the offending driver are given in the paper.
What has been charged in this case?
Who has been charged in this case?
How do you not see a car stopped by the side of the road, if true, with 4 way flashers on and not veer away to go around them unless there is some king of impairment?
What about a little proper reporting with some in depth coverage on this!

You and your family are in our thought and prayers. So sorry to hear about your dad's troubles. I know that you are doing your best to take care of them. Keep your head high, take a deep breath and everything will work out just as it should.

So, I am the adult daughter of the elderly couple in the "black charger" not a small sedan. I drive to cottonwood, my parents, I thought, were able to travel on Monday and I took them to their Dr.
My dad is not able to walk alone, had to have a CT scan. Mom is bruised, sore, sad, scared. My heart breaks, my brother got here today to help which is good, dad needs help in the bathroom.
I can go to work tomorrow and not worry about dad falling and mom not able to get dad up. Dad was not in this shape prior to the accident. I am sad for them. Not minor injuries.
Oh, dad and mom, Charles and Sally Ochoa both born and raised in Cottonwood. Old family, Ochoa and Teague. Pray for them friends.
Thank you.

We spend all winter there. I believe the speed limit is 45 miles an hour. Very few abide by it, and very seldom see an enforcement officer around.

If the VI is going to report news like this, report the complete story. The black car was stopped, pulled of the road, flashers on. The pick-up hit the car with enough force that it flipped over the car. The occupants of the car have significant injuries.

Moderate damage? What does extensive look like?
