Buckeye, Arizona—Eric Merrill, age 59, was killed in a rollover accident that occurred on Palo Verde Road near Interstate 10 in Buckeye. Two others, including Mr. Merrill's son, were injured in the crash.

The accident is being investigated by the Buckeye Police Department. Two vehicles were involved in the collision and both rolled. It is unknown whether speed or impairment were factors in the collision.

A procession of fire and police escorted Mr. Merrill to the medical examiner's office in downtown Phoenix.
