Man Dies In Rollover South Of Town


Police are investigating a rollover Monday morning that killed a man on southbound Highway 87.

The Payson Police Department and the Gila County Sheriff’s Office are working together to piece together what happened and are releasing few details.

The Payson Roundup has learned sometime that this morning a man believed to be driving a stolen vehicle, bounced off a guardrail five miles south of town on Highway 87, flipped over the guardrail and went down an embankment.

Police believe the vehicle was part of a larger group of vehicles stolen from the Show Low area.
