YUMA, AZ - A Yuma truck driver has pleaded not guilty to 20 felony charges stemming from the May 6 death of an Arizona Department of Public Safety officer.
Officer Tim Huffman was killed in his patrol vehicle when it was struck as part of a multi-vehicle collision involving a tractor-trailer rig driven by 33-year-old Jorge Espinoza.
The accident occurred as Huffman was writing a report at an accident site on Interstate 8 in eastern Yuma County.
The Yuma Sun reports that Espinoza was arraigned Monday in Yuma County Superior Court on one count of second-degree murder, 13 of endangerment and six of criminal damage.
Espinoza was not injured in the crash.
