Services set for Arizona officer killed in crash

YUMA, Ariz. — Funeral services for an Arizona Department of Public Safety
officer are scheduled Wednesday in Yuma.

Tim Huffman had responded to an accident along Interstate 8 on May 6 when a
tanker truck smashed into his vehicle. No one else was injured, but authorities
say one officer had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit by the truck.

Services for Huffman begin Wednesday at 9 a.m. at the Yuma Civic Plaza
following a procession from the mortuary.

Huffman was a 14-year DPS veteran and the 29th officer killed in the line of
duty. He was 47.

A Yuma man is facing charges in connection with the crash, including one count
of manslaughter.
