This Week In Jeep:
Tragic Jeep Rollover
At around 4:05 p.m. saturday afternoon, The Sedona Fire District was dispatched to 36400 SR 89A near Page Springs Road in Arizona on reports of an accident and brush fire. According to a news release from Jon Davis, fire marshal for the Sedona Fire District, the accident involved a tour jeep from “A Day In The West” Jeep Tours. The company offers various levels of Jeep only offroad tours of the Sedona area including several historical and challenging trails. On Saturday, this particular Jeep which had been modified to carry more passengers, had been carrying six people plus the driver. The jeep had rolled over for an unknown reason, but came to rest in an upright position.
WELL…that didn’t take long.
