TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The Tucson Police Department is working a single-vehicle, serious injury collision in Rita Ranch.

Sgt. Kimberly Bay tells KGUN9 that officers are on scene at Via Las Palmeritas and Paseo San Rosendo.

Details about this incident are still coming into the newsroom.

We have a crew headed to the scene and will have the latest for you as soon as it becomes available.

Police say the call about the single car collision came in just after noon. It happened at the intersection of Paseo San Rosendo and Via Las Palmeritas. 

Bay says the driver lost control of the car which caused it to hit a curb and roll over. 

The driver was not injured. One of the passengers has serious life-threatening injuries and was transported to the hospital. 

Bay says alcohol and speed appear to be factors. There were five people total in the car and it appears three wandered away from the car but police were able to find them all.
