ELOY, AZ - Authorities say a man and woman died in a crash Thursday afternoon in the Eloy area after they left a service at a nearby cemetery.
The collision happened around 12:30 p.m. on southbound State Route 87 at State Route 84, said spokesman Bart Graves with the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
The vehicle was stopped at a stop sign before they began driving through the intersection.
The vehicle was then hit by a large pickup truck, Graves said.
Both the female driver and male passenger of the vehicle died at the scene.
Graves said they had just left a funeral service nearby.
It’s unclear how the driver of the pickup truck is doing.
