Man killed in Interstate rollover

STONEMAN LAKE - A 58-year-old Phoenix man was killed when he was ejected from his rolling vehicle on Interstate 17 Saturday.

A pickup truck, pulling a towing dolly, left the road at the Stoneman Lake interchange. The trailer separated from the truck; the pickup rolled and then returned to the freeway.

Gilbert Alvarez was thrown from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after the 5:15 p.m. accident.

Another man who was a passenger in the vehicle was suspected to have multiple traumas and was flown by medical helicopter to the Flagstaff Medical Center.
