Morning roads a mess; radar van starts east, moving west

Deputy sheriffs were busy as of 7:09 a.m. Thursday as cars crashed into each other, a bicycle and power poles in the unincorporated county.

Tucson police also were investigating two collisions in the city.

The traffic problems were:

• At North Swan Road near Eat Calle Barril a car collided with a utility pole, reported to deputies at 7:08 a.m.

• At North Swan and East River Roads the traffic signal was out, most likely because of the crash into the power pole. The lights were reported out at 7:09 a.m.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
