TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Alcohol is believed to be a factor in a four vehicle collision that left multiple people injured.
Deputy Tom Peine tells KGUN9 that on January 27, 2012, deputies were called to serious collision involving multiple vehicles in the vicinity of Mark Road and Valencia Road.
Upon arrival, deputies found four vehicles involved in the crash with multiple injured occupants.
Investigators determined that a passenger car, occupied only by the 47-year-old male driver, traveled eastbound on Valencia Road towards Mark Road. He struck one vehicle traveling in the same direction, skidded and then struck a second vehicle in the opposing lane of traffic. Finally, he collided with another passenger car head on. The final vehicle was occupied by six people.
The driver of the vehicle causing the collisions was transported to UAMC with life threatening injuries. He remains in critical condition.
The driver of the car that was struck head-on, a 72-year-old female, suffered serious injuries, but is in stable condition. The same goes for the front passenger.
The other four occupants suffered only minor injuries. All occupants were wearing seatbelts.
