Driver arrested 1 year after fatal north Phoenix crash

A 29-year-old Valley man is in custody this week in connection with a fatal crash in 2022. Records show he was accused of driving at 107 mph.

PHOENIX — A 29-year-old man was arrested this week in connection with a fatal crash in north Phoenix last year.

On September 22, 2022, a passenger in Connor Crofutt’s car died in a traffic accident and is currently facing charges of manslaughter and aggravated assault.

The two-car collision occurred near 23rd Avenue and Happy Valley Road when Crofutt’s car entered the intersection at high speed and hit a 2003 Buick, court records show.

The driver of the Buick was seriously injured and a passenger in Croft’s car was ejected and later died at the hospital. Phoenix police identified the deceased as 28-year-old Cole Boaz.

Court records show Crofutt showed signs of impairment, and a toxicology report showed his blood-alcohol level was 0.358, more than four times the legal limit.

Investigators later determined Crofutt was allegedly driving at 107 mph before the collision. The posted speed limit in the area where the accident occurred is 45 mph.

The suspect is being held at the Maricopa County Jail.
