Man in wrong-way crash that killed 3 Riverside residents changing plea

After more than one year of negotiations with prosecutors, a man accused of causing a wrong-way collision in Arizona in 2018 that killed three Riverside women is expected to change his plea from not guilty.

Dana Michael Cavanaugh of Washington, Utah, pleaded not guilty to three counts of second-degree murder after his arrest in La Paz County on March 24, 2018.

It was unclear Friday, Feb. 14, whether Cavanaugh would plead guilty or no contest, or to which charges, or what sentence he could receive. Messages were left for the La Paz County Attorney and Cavanaugh’s attorney.

Cavanaugh is not in custody.
