Vehicle rollover at County 15th and Avenue C

SOMERTON, Ariz. - The Somerton Cocopah Fire Department responded to a vehicle rollover at County 15th and Avenue C Tuesday morning.

At 7:25 a.m., a 20-year-old female driver was the only occupant of the gray Toyota Camry that was traveling eastbound on County 15th. 

According to the driver, her Camry's side tires left the pavement when she entered the beginning of the curve, where County 15th becomes Avenue C.

Once the tires hit the gravel shoulder, she lost control and the Camry veered over the curve, off the road and flipped when it hit the soft freshly turned field soil.

Upon arrival, officials found the 20-year-old woman was lying face up and partially out of the driver side window in the care of two bystanders.

The bystanders stated that the driver had been wearing her seatbelt and managed to unbuckle and let herself down, partially extricating herself from the vehicle.

The driver complained of pain to her head and small cuts to her hands.

Somerton Cocopah personnel placed her into full cervical spine immobilization, onto a backboard and was transported to Yuma Regional Medical Center for further observation.
