South Carolina family identified as victims in I-10 crash near Casa Grande

The Arizona Department of Public Safety have identified a South Carolina man and two children who died in a rollover crash in Casa Grande on Nov. 23.

The crash happened on westbound Interstate 10 near State Route 387 at 4:00 a.m. that morning.

DPS says a pickup truck with South Carolina license plates was heading westbound on I-10 when for an unknown reason, the vehicle went off the roadway into the median. 

Seven people were in the truck when it lost control and rolled over.

Three of the victims - the adult male driver, a 3-year-old girl, and a 9-month-old boy - were thrown from the vehicle and died from their injuries.

They have been identified as 74-year-old John Henry White and two of his great-grandchildren — a 3-year-old girl and a 9-month-old boy.

DPS said four other people in the vehicle were seriously injured including three of White’s other great-grandchildren —a 13-year-old girl, a 5-year-old boy and a 9-month-old boy whose twin brother died in the crash.

White’s 33-year-old granddaughter — the mother of the five children — also was injured and taken to a hospital, authorities said.

DPS says they are looking into fatigue as a possible factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.

The family was reportedly traveling from North Charleston, South Carolina when the crash happened.
