Ethan Sabay, 19, of Rio Rancho, N.M., died Saturday in a two-vehicle crash on Fain Road just south of Lakeshore Drive in Prescott Valley, an Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman said.
Sabay's vehicle was sideswiped by a vehicle traveling alongside, and the cause for that is unknown at this time.
"Sabay's vehicle went into the median and rolled," the DPS spokesman said. "Two passengers out of Sabay's vehicle were transported to John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital."
Two other passengers were uninjured in the crash that occurred near milepost 328 just after 12:30 p.m. They refused medical treatment, Central Yavapai Fire District Battalion Chief Brad Davis said.
"We are still investigating the collision and determining if charges will be sought," said CYFD Capt. Daniel Golden.
The crash caused the closure of Fain Road for several hours after the incident.
A 19-year-old Freshman at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Sabay was a Global Security and Intelligence Studies student from Rio Rancho, N.M. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the two-car automobile incident. The two injured students are "OJ" Barakat, an Aeronautical Sciences major from Henderson, Nev., and Michael Mcllhenny, an aeronautical engineering student from Houston, Texas.
Barakat and Mcllhenny both were still in the hospital as of Monday afternoon, beingtreated for multiple fractures, cuts and bruises.
All three students are members of the school's Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity at Embry-Riddle.
