Tragedy followed close on the heels of holiday cheer for the Krznarich family.

About 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 26, near milepost 25 on State Route 85 north of Ajo, a tire blew out on the vehicle being driven by Frank Krznarich, causing it to roll over.

Krznarich, 70, died of his injuries. His wife Annie, 66, was seriously injured. She is currently hospitalized at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Phoenix where it is hoped she will make a full recovery.

Burial will probably be in a veteran's cemetery in the Phoenix area. The family is waiting for Annie Krznarich's condition to improve before completing funeral plans.
