Alcohol suspected in deadly Arizona car crash

Posted: Updated:

Five people, including four teens, were killed when the sport-utility vehicle they were in crashed in an area in northwest Arizona.

Mohave County Sheriff's deputies were called to a single-vehicle rollover in an area south of Colorado City, near the Utah border, late Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators said a Chevrolet Suburban had difficulty turning on a dirt road and rolled over. They also believe the accident happened late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

Four teens and a 22-year-old man were killed in the accident.

Authorities identified the dead as Monica Joy Blistine, 17, of Apple Valley, Utah; Carl Otto Nathaniel Holm, 22, of Hilldale, Utah; Rachel Anne Kolgrove, 17, of Cane Beds, Ariz.; Virgel Taylor Roundy, 15, and Jamison Holm Timpson, 19, both of Colorado City, Ariz.

A sixth person in the vehicle, 18-year-old Nakita Thompson, also of Colorado City, survived the crash and was admitted to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George, Utah.

The sheriff's office believes alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. An investigation into the accident is ongoing.
