Northwest Fire crews responded to I-10 and Avra Valley Road at 2:49 p.m. Sunday after reports of a vehicle rollover.

Several calls indicated that a SUV had rolled several times into the median just west of the Avra Valley exits.  When crews arrived, they found a 56 year-old male patient who had suffered only minor injuries after rolling his SUV several times.

The driver was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the accident.  The driver was transported to the trauma center at the University of Arizona Medical Center’s main campus.

This is the third vehicle rollover within the last week that Northwest Fire units have responded to in which all drivers and occupants have been properly restrained with seatbelts.  All occupants suffered minor to serious injuries but are all expected to survive the incidents.  There were no other vehicles involved and the Arizona Department of Public Safety was at the scene to investigate the cause of the incident.

Northwest Fire District would like to remind all drivers to ensure that everyone within the vehicle is properly restrained at all times when a vehicle is in motion.  Seatbelts save lives!

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
