Hwy 260 widening revisited

In the early morning hours of New Years Eve 2004, Robin Robbins was traveling from Camp Verde to Cottonwood when he veered across State Route 260 into oncoming traffic, killing four people.It was a tragedy that many felt never should have happened, not only because Robbins was found to have been under the influence of drugs, but also because the roadway itself was unsafe.
