Vigil To Be Held Thursday Night For Cyclist Killed In Flagstaff Crash

Ryan Heinsius

A candlelight vigil will be held Thursday evening for a Flagstaff cyclist who was killed last week when a tow truck driver ran a red light.

Joanna Wheaton was among six people hit, and at least two people remain at the hospital with severe injuries. The cyclists were part of a large group ride promoting bike safety and advocacy last Friday evening when the crash occurred at the intersection of Beaver Street and Butler Avenue.

Thursday’s vigil begins at 7 p.m. in Wheeler Park. Organizers request participants bring flameless electric candles and wear masks.
