Anthony Arzaga

Anthony Arzaga, 27, Hayden, has been indicted and was arraigned Aug. 8, 2014, in connection with a fatal crash that occurred near Aravaipa on Sept. 29, 2013.

According to Jim Knupp, Public Information Officer for the Pinal County Attorney’s Office, Arzaga was indicted on two counts of causing death by use of a vehicle while driving privilege was revoked (class 2 felonies) and one count of leaving the scene of an accident (also a class 2 felony).

The accident occurred at milepost 124 on Hwy. 77 approximately 10 miles south of Winkelman near Aravaipa. Arzaga was allegedly driving a Dodge Intrepid when it collided with a Harley Davidson motorcycle being ridden by Daniel Everson, 63, Oracle, and Donna Jo White, 69, Tucson. White was pronounced dead at the scene and Everson was taken to University Medical Center in Tucson, where he succumbed to his injuries.

At the time the accident was investigated, officers with the Arizona Department of Public Safety believed that the occupants of the Intrepid had walked away from the scene. Information was sought from the public by the accident investigators including the whereabouts of Arzaga.

Arzaga is set to be in court on Aug. 18 for a release hearing.

“Arzaga is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty,” Knupp said.
