TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

One person was killed in a two vehicle collision in midtown.

Around 11:26 p.m. on Friday night, officers from the Tucson Police Department and members from the Tucson Fire Department responded to a report of a serious injury collision involving two vehicles on South Swan Road and East 29th Street, TPD said.

TFD arrived on scene and said the driver of a 2004 Ford Mustang sustained serious injuries and was pronounced deceased on scene, TPD said. 

The driver of the other vehicle, a 2006 Dodge Charger, was transported to Banner University Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Detectives from the Tucson Police Department Traffic Investigations Unit responded to the scene to further the investigation, TPD said. Investigators said the driver of the Charger was traveling southbound on Swan Road approaching East 29th Street at a high rate of speed.

The driver of the Mustang was northbound on Swan Road in the left turn lane heading west on 29th Street, TPD said. She made a left turn in front of the driver of the Charger and the two vehicles collided. The Mustang went up on the side walk and struck a pole.

The Charger rolled over onto its top and landed south of the intersection.

TPD said speed appears to be a factor in this collision.

The investigation also revealed impairment may be a factor related to the driver of the Mustang, TPD said.

The driver of the Mustang has been identified as 58-year-old Connie Setrum. 

The investigation is ongoing and no citations or arrests have been made at this time, TPD said. 

We will have more information when it is available.
