TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A man and woman are dead and another passenger seriously injured after a vehicle rolled off a cliff near Tucson.
   
The Pima County Sheriff's Office says the vehicle's driver escaped injury, but she has been jailed on suspicion of two counts of second-degree murder and one count of aggravated assault. They also believe 21-year-old Jacklyn Diane Salazar-Brisacher was driving under the influence of alcohol.
   
Authorities say four people were in a vehicle about 9:20 p.m. Wednesday when Salazar-Brisacher lost control and the vehicle rolled several times off a cliff near Madera Canyon.
   
Deputies rappelled about 200 feet down the cliff and found the bodies of 22-year-old Dustin James Bean and 18-year-old Zaida Ozelle Cruz Pacelli.
   
Authorities say a 22-year-old man remains in serious condition at University of Arizona Medical Center.
