TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - A 26-year-old is dead and two others sustained injuries as a result of a crash that possibly involved alcohol and drugs.
Deputy Tom Peine tells KGUN9 that on March 10, deputies responded to reports of a motor vehicle collision at the north end of Campbell Avenue.
When deputies arrived, they found an Infinity SUV had crashed into the entry wall of the Cobblestone community.
The vehicle was occupied by three individuals, all of whom were transported to local hospitals.
Investigators did not find any pre-crash skid marks and determined that none of the occupants were wearing a seat-belt, Peine said.
Investigators believe the vehicle had exceeded the speed limit and then failed to negotiate the turn through the roundabout. The vehicle crashed into the wall.
Alcohol and drugs are considered a factor in the incident.
Further examination of the vehicle revealed open containers inside the passenger compartment.
Marijuana and mushrooms, both packaged for sale, along with a loaded shotgun were also found
in the SUV.
The driver, Jonathan Castaneda, 26, died on the way to the hospital.
One of the two passengers remains in critical condition. The other passenger was reported to be in stable condition.
The investigation into the crash continues.
