An Irishman has been killed in a head-on collision in north west Arizona, according to reports from the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office.

San Diego 6 reported that the crash which killed 39-year-old Francis Kelly took place near the Grand Canyon West turnoff.

Three Irish men were headed east in a Chevy Malibu when the car crossed the centreline and collided with a Toyota. A husband and wife were travelling in the other car.

Kelly was riding in the back of the car. The second man was taken to Kingman for treatment while the third was flown to Las Vegas.

On Wednesday, the sheriff’s office reported that the couple who were in the Toyota were also flown to Las Vegas where they remain in a critical condition.

Police are investigating the crash.
