Tucson woman killed in fiery crash on I-10


A Tucson woman is dead, following a fiery crash on I-10 through Downtown.

It happened just before 8:30 PM Friday.

Department of Public Safety investigators say Kristina Hoekstra, 31, was killed when she was hit by a man who was driving the wrong way on the freeway.

Investigators say Michael Beaudry, 44 was driving a truck that was headed the wrong way, when he entered the off-ramp near Congress. Beaudry's truck hit Hoekstra's car head-on, causing her car to catch fire.  

A bystander pulled Hoekstra from her burning car. She was rushed to University Trauma Center, where she later died from her injuries.

Beaudry suffered non life-threatening injuries, according to DPS.

DPS says they are continuing their investigation into whether drugs and/or alcohol were factors in the crash.
