TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A 65-year-old woman died and a midtown intersection was closed for more than five hours Friday morning due to a three-vehicle crash, authorities said.

The Tucson Police Department said Kathleen Foshay died at a local hospital after she was hit at the intersection at East Fort Lowell Road and North Tucson Boulevard. No one else was injured in the crash.

The TPD said a white Ford Edge was speeding on Fort Lowell Road when it struck the side mirror of a white Subaru Forester that was slowing for the traffic light Tucson Boulevard. The driver of the Edge did not stop at the red light and ran into Foshay's vehicle.

Impairment does not appear to be a factor in the collision, according to the TPD. The investigation is ongoing and no arrests or citations have been made.

The crash happened around 7:20 a.m. and the roadway was closed until 1 p.m.

    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.
