GILBERT, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - A junior at Campo Verde High School was killed in a car crash over the weekend while heading to Show Low for a ski trip. It happened on Saturday morning on the US 60 outside of Globe, near the Salt River Canyon.

"They were driving along in the truck, and they hit a patch of ice, and then they were t-boned by a bigger truck, and most of the damage was on the passenger side, Jayson's side," said Bryson Murset, Jayson's older brother.

Bryson said Jayson died at the hospital, and his father and sister, who were also in the vehicle, were badly injured.
