Tucson, AZ (December 13, 2019) – Officers with the Tucson Police Department have released details after a fatal collision that happened on Wednesday.
According to information from the TPD, Deborah L. Wildfang, 62, was driving a Kia Optima in the center lane of North Huntington Park Drive when an eastbound Toyota Rav4 SUV struck her around 7:00 p.m.
Wildfang was pronounced dead shortly after being transported to the hospital.
Witnesses told police that the other driver in the SUV was speeding, as well as weaving in and out of traffic with no headlights on before the crash. The man was treated for serious injuries at a hospital and released. DUI officers determined he was not impaired during the crash, but the investigation is ongoing.
Our condolences go out to the family of Deborah L. Wildfang.
