Prescott man being investigated after fatal crash

PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. — Authorities say Prescott man involved in a fatal
car accident in northern Arizona is being investigated for driving while
impaired.

Prescott Valley police say 49-year-old Kris Raymond McClain told authorities
that he had used both marijuana and methadone for medical reasons before Tuesday
afternoon’s three-car crash.

Police said Wednesday that they still didn’t have confirmation on whether
McClain had a medical marijuana card or other necessary documents.

They say McClain is being held on suspicion of second-degree murder, three
counts of aggravated assault, three counts of endangerment and two DUI-related
charges.

Authorities say a passenger in one of the other cars _ 19-year-old Hayley
Stevens of Dewey _ was pronounced dead at a Prescott hospital after the crash.
The 46-year-old female driver and a 16-month-old baby girl were seriously
injured.
