MOUNT LEMMON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Pima County Sheriff's deputies are investigating a single-vehicle crash on Mt. Lemmon Sunday morning.

Traffic was shut down at the bottom of the Mt. Lemmon Highway Sunday.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department says 42-year-old Laura Rodriguez was heading down the mountain that morning with her 2-year-old daughter in the back seat. Their car drove over an embankment and off the side of the mountain. Both she and her daughter were ejected from the car.

PCSD says Rodriguez was killed in the crash but the girl was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
