Rollover Closes Highway 87 Wednesday


Officers closed southbound Highway 87 for an hour Wednesday night after a vehicle rolled just south of town.

The crash happened at 4:45 p.m., near milepost 246, involving a white Chevrolet pickup.

After rolling, the truck landed on its roof in the high-speed lane.

The driver suffered only minor injuries, said Carrick Cook, public information officer with the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

The road was reopened at 5:45 p.m., he said.

Last week, a rollover in the same area killed a 7-year-old girl.
