Mother, 2 children injured in serious car crash on Valencia Road

UPDATE: Woman dies from injuries in Tuesday's car crash in Tucson's south side

A woman and her two children were injured in a serious single-vehicle car crash Tuesday evening, authorities said.

Police say the car hit a fire hydrant before crashing into a street light after the woman lost control near Valencia Road and Plumer Avenue, shortly before 6:40 p.m.

The woman was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, said Sgt. Pete Dugan, a Tucson police spokesman. Her infant was taken to a hospital with serious injuries and her toddler suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the crash.

The serious-injury crash shut down a stretch of Valencia Road from Plumer Avenue and Tucson Boulevard, but the area has since reopened.

Detectives are investigating the cause of the car crash, Dugan said.

No further information has been released.
