Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has ordered the lowering of flags at state office buildings to half-staff on Monday in honor of Ann Day, a former Pima County official and ex-legislator who was killed in an automobile crash in the Tucson area.

Ducey says Day was a dedicated public servant who was a champion for southern Arizona and her constituents.

The 77-year-old Day was the sister of former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

Day was killed Saturday when a man's vehicle crossed the median and struck her car head-on. A truck then rear-ended Day's car.
