A Taylor man was killed in a two-vehicle crash early Tuesday morning in the town of Star Valley, Gila County sheriff's deputies said.

The victim is identified as Danny Adcox.

Deputies said their preliminary investigation indicates Adcox was driving westbound on Highway 260 when he crossed over the center line and collided head-on with a truck.

The truck was carrying four members of a contract tree service. Deputies said all the crew members were wearing seat belts and none of them were injured.

Adcox had been pulling a small trailer at the time of the crash.

Deputies said Adcox had his dog with him and it died, too.
