Officials have named the woman who died in a crash Wednesday on Tucson's west side.
Margaret M. Ramirez, 69, was killed in the crash that happened around 12:30 p.m. on West Silverlake Road near Interstate 10, said Tucson police in a news release.
Detectives learned that Ramirez was driving a 2019 Chevrolet Impala westbound on Silverlake and did not stop for the red light at the intersection, police said. A 2019 Kia was driving northbound through the intersection on a green light. The Impala drove in front of the Kia, and the two cars crashed, police said.
The driver of the Kia suffered minor injuries. No citations have been issued, police said.
Yesterday, Tucson PD had its first official UAS (drone) flight! As allowed by policy, our inaguaral drone flight was used to map a particularly complex fatal collision on Silverlake & I-10. Our drone will also help us map crime scenes--improving accuracy while saving time & money pic.twitter.com/MvnpyPxwnq— Chris Magnus (@ChiefCMagnus) August 8, 2019
