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.

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is holding its monthly board meeting, two days after it heard from a panel on what it needs to do to improve its accountability and efficiency and restore public trust.
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey could rescind a $1-a-year lease for a park-and-ride lot near the Lincoln Tunnel. The agency's chief of real estate and development told a committee Wednesday that it should change a deal made in 2012. Published reports have alleged that former Port Authority chairman David Samson voted to approve the lease even though his law firm did business with New Jersey Transit, which operates the park-and-ride lot.
