Tucson, AZ – Antonio Calva Dies After Injurious Accident at Kolb Rd & 22nd St

Tucson, AZ (February 12, 2020) – Officers from the Tucson Police Department Traffic Investigations Unit are investigating a fatal vehicle collision that occurred last month on Tucson’s east side.

Officers from Operations Division East and Tucson Fire were dispatched to the intersection of South Kolb Road and East 22nd Street for the report of a serious injury collision involving two motor vehicles on January 12. Once authorities arrived, the driver of one of the vehicles was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Officers say the accident happened when a minivan traveled into the left turn lane to make a northbound turn onto N. Kolb Road. At that time, a white 2011 Toyota Camry was traveling westbound on 22nd Street and entered the intersection, colliding with the minivan.

The driver of the Camry remained on scene and cooperated with the investigation.

On February 8, the Traffic Investigations Unit was notified by the Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner that the driver of the minivan had passed away from his injuries. The driver of the minivan has been identified as 69-year-old Antonio Calva.

The accident remains under investigation at this time.
