PRESCOTT — Authorities have released the identity of a Sun City man killed in a motorcycle accident in northern Arizona.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety says 75-year-old William H. Pritchett, who lives in Sun City part of the year, was declared dead at the scene of Wednesday’s crash on Highway 89A in Prescott.
DPS says Pritchett, who also resides in Dillon, Colo., was one of three motorcyclists riding from Sun City to Sedona when they collided with a vehicle that reportedly was racing in the Mingus Mountain area.
The Daily Courier of Prescott says one of the other motorcyclists was treated and released from a hospital and the third escaped injury.
The DPS says the driver of the vehicle involved is an 18-year-old Prescott Valley man, and he could be facing charges in the accident. They say that will be determined by the Yavapai County Attorney’s Office.
