Special to the Review


A Chino Valley couple died, and an 18-year-old Prescott man suffered serious injuries in a head-on collision on Highway 89 at the south end of Chino Valley the evening of June 7.

Nick and Nona Davirro were driving an SUV northbound on 89 when a southbound pickup truck crossed the double yellow lines at 4:50 p.m. and struck their Toyota Highlander. Both vehicles rolled, and the Davirros were killed, said Commander Mark Garcia of the Chino Valley Police Department.

Nick Davirro, 91, was mentioned in March and April Daily Courier columns about a World War II history book in which a photo of him was printed. His wife, Nona, was 81.

The driver of the pickup, Isaac Browning, 18, from Prescott, was flown to Flagstaff Medical Center and is in stable condition. An officer who spoke to Browning at the hospital said Browning told him he swerved to avoid an object on the roadway, according to Garcia; officers scoured the road that evening but were unable to find anything that might have been on the pavement prior to the accident, Garcia added.

Police have yet to file any charges against Browning. They do not believe alcohol or drugs were involved in the crash, said Garcia.
