A two-vehicle crash on John Wayne Parkway Wednesday sent three people to the hospital, but none of the injuries were life-threatening.

The accident occurred at the Maricopa Marketplace traffic signal around 2:00 pm. According to Sgt Stephen Judd of the Maricopa Police Department, a maroon Chevy Uplander mini-van, southbound on John Wayne, attempted to make a left turn into the Fry’s center and was struck by a white Volkswagen headed northbound.

Units from Maricopa Fire Stations 571 and 574 responded to the scene. Two occupants were trapped in the Chevy, a male and female both in their 70′s. Firefighters removed the van’s windscreen to extract the female passenger, then cut back the roof in order to access the male driver.

The female was treated on-scene and then transported by Southwest Ambulance to Mercy Gilbert Medical Center for further evaluation and treatment. The driver of the van, along with the male driver of the Volkswagen, were treated on-scene and then transported to Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix as a precautionary measure.

According to Judd, all three were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the accident.

“Whenever a car rolls over or takes any serious impact, the risks of occupants being thrown from the vehicle and sustaining serious, if not fatal injuries, greatly increase,” said Maricopa Fire Department spokesman Brad Pitassi. “These three did the right thing by getting into their vehicles today and clicking in their seat belts. This should be a reminder to everyone to do the same.”

Northbound traffic on John Wayne Parkway was restricted to one lane for about an hour.
