A woman acting strangely led to a multi-car crash on the East Side around 7:00 Saturday night, shutting down a major intersection for hours. 
 
Three cars were involved in the crash. One person was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, according to the Tucson Police Department.
 
One witness to the crash said he saw a woman get out of the car who began to yell she did it on purpose.
 
"I heard her just yelling, I did that on purpose," witness Jody Wells said. "She picked up a part of her car, swinging it around, threw it back down, and said it again. I did that on purpose. And then started running southbound on Wilmot."
 
Another witness was sitting at a red light in her car about a mile from the intersection when she saw a car fly by.
 
"She went past me so fast," Julia Higgins said. "And like, you could hear how fast it was, like the *vrooom* kind of sound of a car that's driving really, really fast."
 
One witness estimated she was driving almost 100 miles an hour.
 
"She was driving probably, 100 miles per hour, with her flashers and honking her horn," Joseph Fisher said. "Came flying through the intersection and hit this white Jetta that you see behind me. The Jetta then in turn rolled a couple times, and ended up hitting that white car."
