Tonight, just after 9:00p.m., at the intersection of Valencia Rd. and Tucson Blvd., a Pima County deputy was involved in a serious collision with another vehicle. A Toyota sedan turned left from westbound Valencia Rd. to Southbound Tucson Blvd. when the patrol vehicle collided with the passenger side of the Toyota. Both occupants in the Toyota were transported to a local hospital with serious injuries. The deputy was transported to a local hospital with neck pain. The Pima County Sheriff’s Departments traffic unit and Tucson Police Department are conducting a joint investigation. Due to heavy traffic congestion we are asking the public to avoid the area if possible.
