Yesterday, September 24, 2019, just after 3 PM, deputies were dispatched to a two vehicle collision on Iron Springs Road between mile marker 14 and 15, outside of Skull Valley, AZ. The vehicles involved were a white 2014 Chevrolet 3500 Crew cab truck and a silver 1989 Toyota Camry 4-door sedan.
Skull Valley Fire personnel were on scene as deputies began arriving and learned that both occupants in the Toyota were deceased. The driver of the truck and his passenger sustained non-life threatening injuries.
Based on witness statements and a preliminary review of the evidence, deputies determined the collision occurred when the Chevrolet truck, travelling north towards Prescott, drove left of center and collided head on with the Toyota sedan, travelling south towards Skull Valley.
Names of the involved parties, including those deceased, will be released once next of kin notification has been completed. There has been some difficulty tracking down family members of the deceased and that effort continues today.
