One woman was killed Wednesday afternoon following a one-vehicle accident. The Yuma County Sheriff’s Office says 54-year-old Jeri Ellen McCoy was driving her Ford Explorer in the 1600 block of West County 17 ¾ Street, when she lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a power pole on the north side of the roadway. She was transported to Yuma Regional Medical Center via Rural Metro Ambulance. She was pronounced deceased at the emergency room.
The cause of the incident is still under investigation. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
