A helicopter transports a 23-year-old man with critical injuries to John C. Lincoln Hospital in Phoenix Saturday evening. According to police, the man allegedly jumped out of a moving vehicle at Spouse Drive and Tracy Drive in Prescott Valley.

Prescott Valley Police have released some details of an incident that sent a man to the hospital with critical injuries Saturday evening.

At 6:45 p.m., police were called to the 8400 block of Spouse Drive when a 23-year-old man allegedly jumped from a moving vehicle and struck his head.

The car wasn't speeding when the man reportedly jumped out, said Prescott Valley Police Sgt. Brandon Bonney. The car was traveling within the speed limit for the area, which is 25 mph.

"At this point, I've got different people telling me what his intentions were," Bonney said. "He was reportedly angry and agitated at the time he jumped from the car."

The man was airlifted to John C. Lincoln Hospital in Phoenix with critical injuries, Bonney said.

It was unknown at press time if the man survived his injuries.

Police did not know if the man was a resident of the Prescott area.

"How about we just install gps software in everyones car and if you break the law in any way you are automatically sent a $400 fine in the mail."

On a side note...it's a work in progress. The Progressive "Snap Shot" that records your driving habits...And there it is there! Sneaky wittle wabbits.

Did any of you take the time to actually read and attempt to comprehend what "Support Photo Enforcement" wrote? You all fell for the bait and just jumped in and started blasting cameras without even reading what was written. Typical liberals. Why use reason when you can use emotion and chicanery, right?

Cameras reduce collisions, save lives and free up our police officers to conduct other duties. No they don't stop people from jumping from moving vehicles, but I thought that was obvious. And if that isn't enough, they cost the taxpayer nothing (and no they don't violate anyone's rights.) Only those drivers who don't want to be held accountable for their poor driving habits fail to support photo enforcement.

One thing this article fails to state is whether this young man that jumped out of the vehicle was driving or was a passenger. Hopefully he was a passenger.

How does fish sound for dinner, hubby? I was thinking salmon...

CYFD did the right thing here. Also, I think the Courier meant John C. Lincoln North, but I am not positive. The North location is the one that usually receives trauma patients from our area.

Nice quote by Teddy there, hubby!

@ Go figure -Your pontification was noted!!!! (look it up)

“It is not the critic who counts not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood who strives valiantly." T.R.

Wow really I can’t believe what I am reading.
Why camera’s? How would having more camera’s in the area prevented this from happing?
He jumped from the car. There was no speeding. So what would the cameras do to help??????
The reason they landed the bird in the street, was due to the fact he was critical condition and the faster they can get him to a hospital for surgery the better.
I live in the area it happed and I herd the call go out. The cops were their in less then 3 min and the fire department not too long after that.
If it was one of your loved ones hurt and a helicopter was the only way to save their live I bet you wouldn’t care were it landed. Would you??? Food for thought.

Three local incidents point to instability:
1. guy who threatened strangers with meat cleaver because, he claims, his wife and kids are held captive above dairy department in grocery store.
3. guy who burns banners and knocks things over on Whiskey Row because Prescott's not working out for him.
2. Young man jumps out of moving car for whatever reason.
5. numbering all messed up .

Photo radar cameras violate our constitutional rights to due process. Once your picture is taken, you're already found guilty. Again it violates our constitutional rights to due process. I feel they should be taken down and found illegal.

Yes, lets install traffic cameras to stop people jumping out of moving vehicles, and then complain about how the fire department decides to treat them!!! GREAT IDEA!!!! Hey go figure, have you ever heard of protocol? Maybe, and I'm betting, these firemen had a DUTY to transport this person via helicopter. And what on earth would a camera done to stop this incident?

Cameras will be turned off Oct 3rd. Thank you notes should be mailed Oct 4th.

And upgrading these photo radar cameras to license plate recognition would allow for easy tracking of all drivers. Cops wouldn't have to drive around in circles looking for suspects.

Perhaps you support that too?

Of course cameras are crude. How about we just install gps software in everyones car and if you break the law in any way you are automatically sent a $400 fine in the mail.

I have no doubt that by using intensive monitoring , cameras, GPS, blood tests and the like we could create a society where it would be possible to get away with a crime.

Would that then make you happy?

We must do this for the children, think of the children.

They decide to land the bird on a residential street and next to power lines instead of transporting the patient two miles to the heli-pad at YRMC East.. typical CYFD.

@ Support Photo Enforcement

I have lived in areas where there is no camera and it still takes awhile for emergency vehicles to get to where ever the emergency is. Having a camera on the roads or highways don't help the damn emergency vehicles to get to where the emergency is at, dimwit!!!!

In no way shape or form would another STILL camera have prevented this man from jumping out of a car going 25MPH...cameras are against anyone's civil rights and I say NO to all of them....they cost taxpayers a ton of money of which we never see...it vanishes....the money from tickets revenue just vanishes

Ever wonder why the police aren't responding to your calls more quickly or out enforcing traffic laws on the roadways more often?? Here's your answer.

Photo enforcement allows them time to work these incidents of stupidity and still enforce traffic laws 24/7. Support the placement of additional cameras.
