A 22-year-old woman has died in a crash in Gila Bend.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said sometime after midnight a Ford F-250 was traveling near Harrington Road and Indian Road. The truck failed to stop, went off the road and flipped into the air.

At 1:40 a.m., an officer traveling home located a man standing in the middle of the road with obvious injuries. The man said he was in a crash.

The officer contacted MCSO who was able to locate the truck and a woman trapped inside.

The woman, 22-year-old Sierra Cipriano was transported to the hospital where she later died.

MCSO said the crash is under investigation but speed and alcohol are believed to be factors.
