DPS: Impairment likely in fatal Highway 89 crash
The Arizona Department of Public Safety says impairment was likely a factor in Tuesday’s collision north of Flagstaff that left one person dead and two others injured.
A sedan was headed north on Highway 89 near mile marker 439 when it was rear-ended by another car.
Officials say the vehicle then crossed the median and southbound lanes before it rolled over multiple times before it came to a stop. The sedan also left the road and rolled several times.
Both drivers were taken to the Flagstaff Medical Center.
A passenger in the sedan was pronounced dead at the scene. DPS has not released their name as the agency says they haven’t notified the family as of Wednesday.
