Tucson, AZ – Edith Ramos Rascon Killed in Multi-Car Crash at Campbell Ave
Tucson, AZ (April 15, 2020) – One person has died as the result of an accident on April 3.
Officers from Operations Division South were dispatched to the intersection of South Campbell Avenue and East Drexel Road for the report of a fatal collision around 10:30 p.m. involving two vehicles. Upon arrival, Tucson Fire personnel rendered aid to three juvenile passengers in a 2004 Chevy Avalanche. The driver, 31-year-old Edith Ramos Rascon, was declared dead at the scene.
Tucson Fire transported the remaining passengers to Banner University Medical Center, two with minor injuries and one with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
Traffic Detectives were contacted and responded to continue the investigation.
According to witness interviews conducted by officers and detectives, Rascon was driving her vehicle northbound on Campbell Avenue, approaching Drexel Road. A 2017 Nissan Maxima was traveling westbound on Drexel Road approaching Campbell Avenue on a green light. Rascon then collided with the vehicle after a collision with the Chevy Avalanche, which caused Rascon to lose control of her vehicle. After colliding with a street light, Rascon’s vehicle continued to travel northbound, striking a wooden power pole and finally coming to a rest after colliding with a chain-link fence.
Interviews in conjunction with roadway evidence determined that speed appears to be a factor in this collision. The investigation is ongoing and no charges or citations have been issued.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Edith Ramos Rascon. Our thoughts are with the injured victims in hopes of a full recovery.
