He was being held without bail Thursday pending extradition to Virginia. He also is accused of a robbing a bank in Las Vegas, the FBI said.

The three-vehicle accident occurred about 2:15 p.m. at Rural and Warner roads, Tempe Fire Department officials said. They said the intersection was closed for more than two hours as a result. The eastbound truck was behind a passenger car at a traffic light on Warner, authorities said. An eastbound vun failed to stop at the light and hit the truck, which struck the car, authorities said.

Joseph Allen Hollenback, 24, of the 2100 block of West Coolidge Street, was arrested Wednesday and booked into a Maricopa County jail on a charge of first-degree felony murder. He allegedly helped rob Frank Murphy, 37, and steal his car from a motel parking lot on East Van Buren Street. Murphy collapsed and died of insufficient blood flow to his heart, autopsy findings said. A second suspect, James Koelpien, 25, was arrested March 19. A third remains at large.
