TUCSON, Ariz. - Two people are dead after a deadly three-car wreck at the intersection of Tangerine and La Canada Wednesday morning.

According to Oro Valley police, 85 year-old Richard Brown died at the scene, and the driver of the same vehicle, 85 year-old Marjory Brown, was taken to the Banner UMC where she later died.

According to Oro Valley police, the Browns were driving east on Tangerine Road approaching La Canada when a white Ford Raptor drive by a 19-year-old man collided with them. The crash pushed their car into the path of an oncoming tow truck. That collision caused them to hit a tree.

This investigation is ongoing.

Two more victims were taken to the hospital with non-life threating injures.
