Memorial held for border patrol agent killed in roll-over crash

Tucson - A memorial service was held Saturday for a border patrol agent who died in a roll-over crash on I-10 near Benson.

The single vehicle accident happened Wednesday morning at mile-post 314 near Sybil Road.

Agent Alexander Giannini was with another agent in a work vehicle.

He was ejected from his vehicle. He died while being flown to the University of Arizona Medical Center.

Giannini was a five-year veteran.

A Department of Public Safety spokesman said the roll-over was in part due to a blow-out caused by tire tread separation.

The memorial service was held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
