SHOW LOW — Show Low Police spokesperson Kristine Sleighter confirmed that two persons died in a crash Monday on State Route 77 near the Lone Pine Dam transfer station at milepost 348.

The crash took the lives of Edwin Weiss of Show Low and Virgie Mae Jensen of Taylor.

The investigation is ongoing and is noncriminal in nature. Currently, there are no witnesses to the collision and authorities ask that if anyone witnessed the collision to contact Lt. Brandon Clark at 928-537-5091 ext232.

In addition, a posted video on social media of another incident Monday shows a passenger vehicle pulling a trailer on U.S. 60 near the Bourdon Ranch Road turnoff. It passed a slower vehicle and as it was returning to the lane after passing, the trailer clipped the slower vehicle that caused the passing vehicle towing the trailer to crash roll.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety took over the U.S. 60 rollover case investigation and its spokesman, Bart Graves, confirmed that there was a rollover near Concho at 9:53 a.m. at milepost 364.

Graves described it as a single-vehicle rollover with minor injuries.
