CAMP VERDE — A 22-year-old Camp Verde woman is dead after a multiple-vehicle collision along State Route 260 and Sierra Road, according to the Camp Verde Marshal's Office.

Faith Kalis was pronounced dead at the scene yesterday. Her 2-year-old son was flown to Phoenix Children's Hospital and is being treated for life-threatening injuries.
