TUCSON, Ariz. — A serious injury wreck that shutdown Westbound Grant Road from Oracle to 15th Avenue Wednesday has turned fatal, according to TPD.

Officers responded to the two-vehicle crash just after 1 p.m.

TPD says the driver of one vehicles was pronounced dead at the scene. He has been identified as 35-year-old David Doyle.

Two passengers and the driver of the other vehicle were transported to Banner UMC with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

After further investigation, TPD determined through interviews that Doyle was traveling eastbound on Grant in the left turn lane.

"Investigators believe Mr. Doyle was either turning northbound onto 15th Ave. or attempting to make a U-turn onto westbound Grant Rd," TPD said in a statement.

As he was turning, the other vehicle struck the passenger side of Doyle's vehicle. This resulted in his vehicle being forced into a large power pole.

"A DUI Officer responded to the hospital and determined that the driver of the Hyundai was not impaired at the time of the collision. Investigators believe that excessive speed and failure to yield while making a left turn are potential factors in the collision," TPD said.

No charges or citations have been issued.
