Chino Valley accused in fatal crash near Ash Fork

Posted: Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - A Chino Valley man is in custody on suspicion of second-degree murder after a car accident in northern Arizona.

Authorities say 52-year-old Roger Mace also has been booked into the Yavapai County jail for allegedly assaulting a law enforcement officer.

Arizona Department of Public Safety officials claim Mace was driving impaired when he allegedly rear-ended another vehicle on Highway 89 south of Ash Fork about 8 p.m. Sunday.

DPS says the victim's car was forced off the road into some trees and flipped, coming to rest on its roof.

The Arizona Daily Sun (http://bit.ly/11xMGls) says the victim's name is being withheld until family is notified.

Authorities say Mace was combative with officers while they were arresting him.
