Collision kills Tucson woman, 55

Citizen Staff Writer



An investigation continues into a collision that killed a 55-year-old Tucson woman.

Adela M. Jacobo died after a car driven by a 64-year-old man crossed into her travel lane and collided with her Jeep Wrangler, said Officer Charles Rydzak, a Tucson police spokesman.

Jacobo, of the 5700 block of East 35th Street, was driving south on North First Avenue at East Holoway Road about 6:30 Monday p.m. when the northbound Ford Focus collided with her, Rydzak said.

Jacobo was taken to a hospital where she died Monday night, Rydzak said.

The driver of the other vehicle also was taken to a hospital where he was listed Tuesday as in serious condition, Rydzak said.

Rydzak said he would not name that other driver as no citations have been issued, pending completion of the investigation.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
