A Gilbert man was killed when the car he was driving slid into oncoming traffic near the Fort Tuthill County Fairgrounds on Tuesday night.
Flagstaff Police Sgt. James Jackson said Raider Polliack, 24, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 11:30 p.m. crash on Arizona Highway 89A near Purple Sage Trail.
Police said witnesses saw a car with Polliack and a passenger slide sideways into oncoming northbound traffic before it was struck broadside by another vehicle. Witnesses also said Polliack's car passed numerous vehicles against double yellow lines on 89A before the crash, according to police.
The driver of the second vehicle and the passenger in Polliack's car were treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Flagstaff Medical Center.
The investigation is ongoing, Jackson said.
