TUBA CITY, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Department of Public Safety says two teenagers from Texas have died in a crash on an Indian reservation near the Grand Canyon.
The agency says 18-year-old Robert Whitefield Henson and 14-year-old Bryce Carrigan, both from Midland, died in the crash early Saturday in northern Arizona. The Midland Classical Academy students were in a sports utility vehicle with an adult driver and three other passengers when it left the road and rolled multiple times.
The SUV was going westbound on State Route 264, which crosses the Navajo and Hopi reservations about 40 miles southeast of the Grand Canyon.
A school athletic director, Andy Zinkgraf, told the Midland Reporter-Telegram (http://bit.ly/PNH0wj ) that the students were on their way to Zion National Park in southern Utah.
