Fatal Crash On I-19 Near Exit 12

A chain reaction crash is what happens when two or more vehicles are involved in an accident. Sometimes it is the result of distracted driving that causes a chain reaction crash. At other times drivers who were following too close to one another, or attempting an unsafe driving maneuver can result in a chain reaction accident. Determining who is actually at fault in such a crash can sometimes prove difficult for investigators, while in others, circumstances are much clearer.

One more recent case which was reported on the Nogales International website, a Tucson woman died in a chain reaction crash on Sunday on Interstate 19 on a stretch of highway located between Nogales and Rio Rico.

Investigators with the Arizona Department of Public Safety said in a statement that the fatal crash happened at approximately on Sunday, November 4th at 1:15 p.m. when a woman who had been traveling Northbound on Interstate 19 attempted to pass an Infiniti sedan with her Ford Ranger pickup truck on the left shoulder of the roadway near Exit 12.

The Ranger struck the Infiniti while attempting the pass, causing the larger vehicle to roll onto the meridian. Three people who had been in the Ranger were ejected from the vehicle during the rollover.

Authorities have identified the driver and victim of the crash as Anna P. Rodriguez, 42. She was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

Authorities have not stated whether there were any other injuries in the accident.
