The Arizona Department of Public Safety responded a double fatal rollover accident on Interstate 10 near Benson Tuesday.

Trooper Kameron Lee tells KGUN9 it was a single vehicle rollover near Empirita Road at milepost 294 on Interstate 10.

Both occupants of the vehicle are deceased. The driver has been identified as 81-year-old Cyril J. Mikula and the passenger has been identified as 69-year-old Marga A. Mikula.

It appears that fatigue was a factor in the crash. They were driving a 2013 Nissan Rouge. 

The collision happened on the westbound lanes of I-10, but did not slow traffic.
