Teen dies in northwest side rollover

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A rollover on Tucson's northwest side claimed the life of a teenage girl, and sent two others to a local hospital early Sunday. 

Pima County Sheriff's Deputy Tom Peine tells Tucson News Now, deputies responded to the area of Ina and Artesiano Roads near Wade Road just before 12:30 a.m..

Deputies found a four-door sedan on its roof, with three 16-year-old girls trapped inside the car.

Peine says Northwest Fire/Rescue crews were able to free the girls from the car. The two 16-year-old passengers were taken to the University of Arizona Medical Center. Peine says their injuries are minor.

Peine says the driver Julia Ann Good, 16, was killed in the crash.

Investigators say Good had been driving too fast over dips on Ina Road west of Wade Road and lost control of the car.

Peine tells Tucson News Now, all three girls were wearing their seatbelts. He adds, alcohol does not seem to be a factor in the crash.

The investigation is now continuing.

    The Forest Service said Tuesday’s high winds, coupled with dry vegetation and low relative humidity – is a formula that can create massive wildfires. Like the Aspen Fire on Mt Lemmon that burned 84,000 acres in 2003.
