Man facing manslaughter charges after Tucson crash kills 2
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Pima County Sheriff’s officials say a truck driver has been arrested after a fatal crash involving a motorcycle north of Tucson.
They say 69-year-old Thomas Waites is facing two counts of manslaughter, criminal damage and driving under the influence in Saturday night’s collision.
It was unclear Sunday if he has a lawyer yet who can speak on his behalf.
Deputies say a man and a woman who were on the motorcycle were found with severe injuries at the crash scene.
They say the man was pronounced dead while the woman was taken to a hospital, where she later died.
Authorities haven’t released the names of the two victims yet.
