SANTA CLARA – Police responded to a single vehicle rollover on Pioneer Parkway Monday that triggered a criminal investigation.
The rollover occurred around 6:20 p.m. in the area of 3200 W. Pioneer Parkway where the road dips into a wash. Santa Clara-Ivins Police Officer Chad Holt said witnesses saw a pickup truck traveling eastbound when it went in the westbound lane into oncoming traffic then swerved back into the eastbound lane and then left the roadway and ended up rolling into the wash.
The pickup’s occupants, an adult man and woman, were not injured in the rollover. Witnesses indicated the man was driving the truck, though Holt said the truck’s occupants weren’t being very cooperative with police on that point.
Alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor, Holt said, which led to a criminal investigation at the scene. As the investigation was ongoing as of 7:30 p.m., Holt did not say if any citations had been issued.
Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact. This report is based on preliminary information provided by responders and others on scene and may not contain the full scope of findings.
