Press Release

Serious Injury Accident on the West Side (Pictures Available)

Sent on 5/18/2013 4:03:26 PM

On May 17, 2013, at approximately 9:00 pm, deputies with the Tucson Mountain District responded to the 10400 block of west Picture Rocks Rd to a report of a collision. The vehicles involved were two pickup trucks- a white Dodge Ram and a grey Ford Ranger. The male driver of the Ford Ranger was found in his truck going in and out of consciousness and was transported to University of Arizona Medical Center (UAMC) in serious condition. The male driver of the white Dodge sustained minor injuries and was transported for precautionary measures. Investigators with the Sheriff’s Traffic Unit were called out to the scene and determined that the driver of the Ford Ranger was traveling eastbound on Picture Rocks Rd. Evidence indicated that he crossed into the opposing lane colliding head on with the Dodge Ram. Alcohol was a factor in this collision, and a preliminary blood test indicated that the driver of the Ford Ranger was more than double the legal limit. At this point the investigation continues.
