The families of three drowned men claim that officials with the Tohono O'odham Nation failed to warn drivers that a late summer rainstorm had flooded a wash. Lester Antone, David Narcho and Harrington Narcho died when flash flood waters carried away a Ford Bronco whose driver had tried to cross a flooded wash.
