Navajo Nation honors tribal policeman killed in car crash


WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. (AP) — Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye has ordered all flags in Chinle to be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset Saturday in memory of a tribal patrol officer killed in a car crash.

The Navajo Nation Police Department says Leander Frank died Tuesday after he was dispatched to a call in the Tsaile area.

Authorities say Frank's vehicle collided head-on with another car in the middle of Navajo Route 64 between Chinle and Tsaile.
