NEAR CAMERON, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - The Department of Public Safety has released the names of the six people who were killed in a head-on crash in northern Arizona during the weekend.

DPS said Javas Cody and his passenger Aaron Chee, 39, of Kayenta, died at the scene on Saturday a few miles north of Cameron, Arizona.

Cody was heading north when he crossed the double-yellow lines slammed into the Hyundai, which was going south, investigators said. He was "moving recklessly" while speeding, according to DPS.
