On May 18, 2013, at approximately 5:30pm, deputies with the San Xavier District responded to the 4900 block of South Swan Road to a report of a collision. The vehicle involved was described as a white Mazda pickup truck. When deputies arrived, they find the vehicle on its side and discovered that the female driver had been ejected from the truck. She was pronounced deceased on scene. Investigators with the Sheriff’s Traffic Unit were called to the scene and determined that the driver was traveling eastbound on Irvington Rd. near Swan. Due to the high rate of speed, the driver failed to negotiate the curve in the road. Evidence indicated that it left the roadway and struck a power pole prior to the vehicle rolling on its side, causing the ejection. Prior to the accident, the vehicle was seen westbound on I10 and was reported by another motorist to DPS as driving recklessly. The identity of the driver is not available at this time due to lack of next of kin notification. The investigation by the Sheriff’s Department continues.
