TUCSON, Ariz. - Tucson police say a 75-year-old passenger involved in an Oct. 1 wreck died Monday.

Just after 7 a.m. Oct. 1 in the 4500 block off South Mission Road, a maroon 2006 Ford Expedition was heading southbound on Mission and was in the left turn lane to head onto West Via Ingresso. It started a left turn during a yellow light.

A blue 1996 Ford Ranger pickup was heading northbound on Mission Road going through the Via Ingresso intersection. As both vehicles were turning, they collided in the intersection. The Expedition continued east and hit a tan 2004 Honda Odyssey minivan.

Paramedics rescued those inside the Ranger and Expedition and transported them to Banner University Medical Center for serious and life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Odyssey was not injured. One of the Ranger passengers, 75-year-old Clovis Isaacs, died Dec. 9.

The driver of the Expedition was cited for failure to yield while making a left turn.

Traffic detectives are reviewing the case for possible additional charges.

Neither speed nor intoxication were believed to have been factors.
