A man seriously injured in a DUI-related crash Sunday has died.

Antonio Guzman-Miranda, 23, died Friday at a local hospital, Sgt. Chris Widmer, spokesman for the Tucson Police Department, said in a news release.

The crash occurred just after 7 a.m. Aug. 3 as Guzman-Miranda was driving a 2008 Nissan Altima at high speeds on the south side.

Guzman-Miranda was driving in the median lane of South Mission Road and moved to the curb lane to pass another car. At West Mission Place, south of West Ajo Way, he lost control of the Nissan, slid sideways and hit a tree in the median, Widmer said.

He was taken to a local hospital with life threatening injuries.

“Alcohol and drugs are believed to be a factor in the collision,” Widmer said.
