PD: Man seriously injured in 50-foot fall down embankment

PEORIA, AZ - Authorities say a man suffered serious injuries after falling about 50 feet down an embankment in Peoria on Saturday.

Peoria police said officers and fire crews responded near 99th and Olive avenues after a passerby found a man not moving at the bottom of an embankment.

Police said it appears the man was walking back from the grocery store when he and his cart went over the side of the walkway and fell toward the wash – about a 50 foot drop.

The man had multiple injuries and was air-lifted to the hospital in serious condition.

The man’s name has not been released.
