HARRISBURG, Pa. — Governor Tom Wolf has ordered all commonwealth flags in the Capitol Complex and at all commonwealth facilities in Fulton and York counties to fly at half-staff to honor Danny Crouse and Ronald Heist.

“What happened yesterday morning was tragic and a senseless act of violence, and the victims and their families and colleagues are in Frances’ and my thoughts and prayers,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “We remember their service to the Turnpike Commission and the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” said the Governor.

Danny Crouse, 55, a Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission employee and Ronald Heist, 72, a security contractor working on behalf of the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission were killed while working at the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission’s Fort Littleton Interchange on Sunday, March 20, 2016.

Flags shall be lowered to half-staff and remain lowered until interment of both Mr. Crouse and Mr. Heist.
