Tucson, AZ (November 29, 2019) – A second person has died after a head-on collision just north of Sierra Vista on Tuesday morning.
One person died Tuesday and the other driver was taken to a Tucson hospital after the fiery collision on SR 90 near Airport Avenue. According to the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office, the second driver later died on Friday. Police say that the accident occurred when a van and sedan collided head-on after the van crossed the center line just before 6:00 a.m.
Before emergency crews arrived, other drivers stopped to render aid. One tried to extinguish the fire in the van with a fire extinguisher before fire crews arrived and extinguished the fire. Sierra Vista Police say that the victims were Lisa Martinez, 40, of Huachuca City, and John Bolgen, 66, of Sierra Vista. The accident remains under investigation at this time.
Our condolences go out to the families of Lisa Martinez and John Bolgen at this time.
