On Saturday, November 24th, 2012 at 2:13 p.m. the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office received a 9-1-1 call related to a serious injury accident on Mount Lemmon Road near the intersection of Fuego Road in Oracle.

The two vehicles involved with the crash were a 2000 Ford F350 truck and a 1991 SPCO sand-rail. The accident occurred as both vehicles were traveling in opposite directions and struck head-on as they came around the corner of the dirt road.

Deputies from the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, PCSO Traffic Unit – “Critical Accident Reconstruction Team” and an officer from the Casa Grande Police Department’s Traffic Unit – “Critical Accident Investigation Team” all assisted with the investigation.

The driver of the Ford truck was Garland Parris (age 44 of Tucson). His passenger was his thirteen-year-old son. Neither reported any injuries from the accident.

The driver of the SPCO sand-rail was Daniel Huntington (age 27 of Tucson). His passenger was Toni Stalker (age 75 of Tucson) Stalker was only wearing the lap potion of the seatbelt and not the full harness the vehicle was equipped with at the time of the accident.

Huntington was taken by ground ambulance to the University Medical Center in Tucson to be treated for a knee and minor head injury. Stalker was transported by ground ambulance to a nearby location where she was then transported by air ambulance to the University Medical Center in Tucson. Stalker was having difficulty breathing at the scene, she was non-responsive and she sustained a very serious head injury. Stalker was listed in “extremely critical condition” when she arrived at the hospital.

On November 25th, 2012 Stalker was pronounced deceased as a result of a “traumatic brain injury.”
