Motorcycle crash kills 2 Arizona prison workers

PHOENIX (AP) – Authorities say two Arizona prison employees are dead after a motorcycle crash in suburban Phoenix.

Maricopa County Sheriff’s officials say the victims in Wednesday night’s crash in Tolleson were 35-year-old John Ollis and 30-year-old Skye Orozca.

They say Ollis and Orozca were Department of Corrections employees. They who worked at the Lewis state prison complex, about 35 miles west of Phoenix.

Sheriff’s officials say Ollis was driving a motorcycle with Orozca as a passenger when the motorcycle collided with a tractor-trailer that was turning onto a main road from a private drive.

They say Ollis was wearing a helmet and Orozca wasn’t.

Authorities say the two were struck by three passing vehicles, and their bodies were dragged for several hundred feet.

Sheriff’s officials say it’s too early to determine if any charges will be filed or citations issued in the crash.
