DPS launches search after Flagstaff-area rollover


At least six people were hospitalized and nine others were located following a rollover and search in northern Arizona.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said it received calls from two residents Friday night who reported some of the occupants had knocked on their doors seeking help, said DPS spokesman Raul Garcia.

The rollover happened on eastbound Interstate 40 near Winona, 10 miles east of Flagstaff.

Of the nine who fled, four were found west of the collision scene and north of I-40 around a campfire, Mure said.

Three were minors and were turned over to Child Protective Services. 

The other six were adults. They were released from the hospital and taken to a local shelter.

The active search, both from the air and on the ground, was called off at about 2 a.m. Saturday.

DPS units returned to the area at daylight and conducted a search. No other occupants were located.

The cause of the rollover remains under investigation.
