Tucson, AZ (October 2, 2019) – Two men have died after a serious accident on Broadway Boulevard Monday evening.
According to the Tucson Police Department, 57-year-old Alejo Carrillo Madueno was identified as one of the victims involved in the two-car collision. The identity of the other victim has not been released.
The crash occurred around 8:00 p.m. at the intersection of East Broadway Boulevard and South Sarnoff Drive. A woman driving a black 2004 Chevy Suburban was traveling eastbound on Broadway Boulevard when she collided with the driver’s side of a white 1998 Chevy Lumina, which was making a left turn onto Broadway Boulevard.
The collision forced both vehicles east and the Lumina, driven by Madueno, came to a stop on a raised median on the intersection’s east side. First responders pronounced Madueno dead at the scene but transported his passenger to Banner University Medical Center via ambulance with life-threatening injuries, where he later died.
The woman was not injured and was determined by authorities to be impaired at the time of the crash. They say that speed was also a factor in the collision. The investigation is ongoing.
We would like to offer our condolences to the families of the deceased victims.
