An arrest has been made in a deadly collision that killed one woman and injured her husband.
Court records show that on July 17 on Jackrabbit Trail and Yuma Road near Buckeye, a Dodge truck rammed a Nissan Sentra sedan near the intersection, pushing it more than 200 feet.
Deputies report that the woman and her husband were taken to the hospital, where the woman was pronounced dead and the husband suffered a broken shoulder.
The driver of the truck, 26-year-old Joseph David Knowles, reportedly told deputies that he was texting while driving. However, a witness told police they saw Knowles hide something under his seat. Deputies say they found a "vapor pen with marijuana," and Knowles showed signs of impairment due to marijuana.
Deputies say speed was also a factor based on the distance the Sentra was moved by the truck.
Knowles has been charged with manslaughter and aggravated assault.
