Jarvis Crenshaw and Danny Haro Killed in Separate Accidents While Working on Arizona Highways
Phoenix, Arizona—Jarvis Crenshaw, age 22 of Laveen, died a day after he was struck by a passenger vehicle while working on a section of the East Loop 101 in Scottsdale.
Shortly before 3:00 a.m. Monday, crew members from a construction company were removing barricades to reopen the southbound lanes of Loop 101 near 90th Street. Mr. Crenshaw was hit by a black Chrysler. The driver remained at the scene. All southbound lanes of the Loop 101 remained closed until about 6:30 A.M.
In another accident, tow-truck driver Danny Haro, age 58, was killed on June 3, 2016 as he attended to a stalled vehicle on Interstate 10 near Benson. Mr. Haro was struck around 2:30 a.m. by a white box truck. The driver then fled the scene. Authorities continue in their efforts to locate the driver.
The Arizona Department of Transportation urges drivers to slow down and use caution near work zones. When driving past any vehicle with flashing lights at the side of the road, Arizona’s “Move Over” law requires motorists to move over one lane, or slow down if it is not then safe to change lanes.
We extend our condolences to the families and friends of Mr. Crenshaw and Mr. Haro at this time of great loss for them.
