Authorities have identified the three people who died in Tuesday's rollover wreck on Interstate 10. The crash involved seven vehicles, including two semis. 

At 8 a.m. Tuesday, a Mack commercial truck that was heading westbound on I-10 failed to stop for backed-up traffic near the Ruthrauff exit. The truck crashed into a Suzuki passenger car driven by 41-year-old Tucsonan Abril Castillo, who was with her 12-year-old daughter.
The crash set off a chain reaction that involved five other vehicles: a Chevy pickup truck driven by 46-year-old Rio Rico resident Tina Totty, a Hyundai driven by 22-year-old man, a commercial box truck driven by 27-year-old Rio Rico resident man, a Dodge passenger vehicle driven by 44-year-old woman and a Hyundai car driven by 24-year-old man.
Castillo died at the scene. Totty and Castillo's 12-year-old daughter died from their injuries at the hospital. One other motorist was injured.
