GREEN VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities have identified the wrong-way driver and three others killed in a deadly collision near Green Valley.

Arizona Department of Public Safety officials confirmed Monday that 52-year-old Tamvra Hoskins was traveling the wrong way on Interstate 19 when her car crashed head-on with another vehicle.

Hoskins, of Green Valley, did not survive the Sunday morning crash.

DPS spokeswoman Vanessa Sevilla says the driver of the other car, 41-year-old Edith Munoz of Tucson, and her two sons, 24-year-old Mario Gradillas and 19-year-old Saul Gradillas, were also killed.

Munoz's 14-year-old son survived but was airlifted to a hospital with life-threatening injuries. His condition was not immediately known Monday.

DPS officials say they have not determined how Hoskins ended up driving the wrong way.
