UPDATE: New information released by the Pima County Sheriff's Department, says that detectives discovered that the Chevrolet Equinox.

The Equinox, driven by 25-year-old Da'Quan Cain, was the vehicle traveling westbound on Valencia Rd, that ran the red light, and not the Jeep Renegade driven by Bazan.

Cain was doing approximately 96 MPH as he ran the red light on Valencia Rd at Mark Rd.

ORIGINAL STORY

A multi-vehicle crash at the intersection of West Valencia Road and South Mark Road, on Tucson's Southwest side, Saturday morning, resulted in the death of a 73-year-old woman.

Debby Bazan was driving west on Valencia when she ran a red light at the Valencia/Mark intersection at about 5 a.m., according to a news release from Pima County Sheriff's Department.

Bazan swerved to avoid a vehicle that had legally entered the intersection from Mark Road to turn left onto eastbound Valencia. Bazan missed the vehicle, but, in doing so, struck two other vehicles heading east on Valencia, the news release said.

Four people sustained injuries, the news release said. One driver fled on foot immediately following the crash.

Bazan was transported to a local hospital where she died from her injuries.

The driver who ran, identified by PCSD as 25-year-old Da'Quan Cain, was found and arrested on suspicion of hit-and-run involving fatality.
