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.

    Just to RE-clarify. The 18 yr old driver was racing his brother down the mountain road and couldn't make the turn. His car swerved into the opposite lane and Bill was hit head on. Of course he's sorry. Sorry he's in trouble. His brother is sorry too? Sorry his motorcycle was impounded because he had a suspended license. How is racing with your brother "helping out a friend"? I'm sorry, this is a story of a dysfunctional family with 2 selfish teenage boys, one of whom killed a dear man.

    Just to clarify something. I know the 18 yr old driver and have heard his side of the story. He was not racing as it is published in the Prescott paper. I know he is very upset by what has happened and wishes he could take back everything that happened that day. He is a father and has a very good heart. He was only trying to help out a friend that day. My heart goes out to the family and friends that have lost a great person in their lives. I will be keeping everyone involved in this accident and their families in my prayers.[sad]
