Officer Tim Huffman was killed when his patrol car was struck by a tractor-trailer on I-8 near Dateland, Arizona, at approximately 5:00 pm.

He and other officers were attempting to shutdown a lane of traffic while investigating an earlier accident. Officer Huffman was sitting in his patrol car writing a report as another officer attempted to shut down a lane of traffic to clear a lane for fire department vehicles. The tractor trailer failed to yield the officer who was waving traffic over and struck the back of Officer Huffman's patrol car at full speed, pushing it into two other patrol cars, a fire department vehicle and a civilian vehicle.

Officer Huffman succumbed to his injuries at the scene. The driver was convicted of first degree murder and on July 8th, 2015, was sentenced to six years in prison.

Officer Huffman was a member of the Arizona Army National Guard and had served with the Arizona Department of Public Safety for 14 years.
