The following is a news release form the Coconino County Sheriff's Office:

60-year-old Larry Albert Dever of St. David, AZ died Tuesday night as the result of a one-vehicle roll-over collision that occurred in the Williams, AZ area.  

On Tuesday, September 18, 2012 at about 6:40 pm emergency dispatchers for the Coconino County Sheriff's Office received the report of a one-vehicle collision that occurred on Forest Service Road 109 approximately two miles north of White Horse Lake.  The caller at the scene reported he did not detect any signs of life from the single occupant of the vehicle.  Coconino County Sheriff's Deputies and medical personnel from the Williams Fire Department and Life Line Medical Transport responded to the collision location. Once on scene medical personnel determined that the victim was deceased.   

The reporting party said he was following a 2008 three-quarter ton Chevrolet Pickup Truck white in color south bound on the dirt road that leads to White Horse Lake.  He said for a brief time he lost sight of the vehicle.  The reporting party saw what appeared to be a cloud of dust, and as he came closer he learned that the vehicle had rolled over and was resting on its wheels.   

At this time based on the reporting party's statements and physical evidence at the scene, Deputies believe that for an unknown reason the driver lost control of the vehicle causing it to leave the roadway, roll over and come to rest on the wheels.   

The victim has been identified as Larry Albert Dever who is the current Sheriff of Cochise County.  He had traveled to the area with the intent of meeting several family members in the area of White Horse Lake for a camping and hunting trip.  This investigation is being continued by the Coconino County Sheriff's Office and the Coconino County Medical Examiner's Office.
