The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office said Lt. Wayne Loughrige, 51, and his son, Joseph Arter, 17, were killed in the crash on southbound Hwy 69 in Humboldt, AZ.

DPS officer said Loughrige's Dodge Durango drifted into the center median, he over corrected and lost control before hitting an embankment.

The father and son died at the scene.
