Two motorists killed Monday in a head-on collision west of Tucson were identified Tuesday by state Department of Public Safety officers.

Steven Hernandez, 22, and Maria Alloway, 64, died, Officer Quentin Mehr said. Hernandez’s passenger, Nicholas Barnes, 24, remained hospitalized Tuesday. All are from the Tucson area.

Hernandez was driving a 1999 Dodge van west on West Ajo Highway near South Kinney Road when he entered the eastbound lane about 4:30 p.m. and collided with a 2000 Chevrolet pickup driven by Alloway, Mehr said.

Authorities found Hernandez dead at the scene. Alloway was taken to a hospital where she died.

DPS officers are continuing an investigation to try to learn why Hernandez drove into oncoming traffic.

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
