Three crashes close I-19 lanes in two spots in Green Valley

Three separate car crashes snarled traffic in two spots along Interstate 19 in Green Valley on Wednesday morning.

It started shortly before 11 a.m. when a 2004 Chevy Malibu lost control and spun out into the median while heading northbound between the Canoa Ranch Road and Continental Road exits. A minor riding in the car was transported to Banner University Medical Center Main Campus with minor injuries, according to the Green Valley Fire District. The 35-year-old female driver of the car and all three passengers – who were minors – were wearing seat belts, the GVFD said.
The second crash occurred as vehicles were slowing because of the first when a 2007 Toyota Rav 4 rear-ended a 2013 Ford Edge. The 31-year-old driver of the Rav 4 was also transferred to Banner University Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. The 73-year-old driver of the Ford Edge and a minor traveling in the Rav 4 were uninjured; everyone was wearing a seat belt, according to the GVFD.

The two crashes closed the northbound left-hand lane until around 12:30 p.m.

Shortly before 11:30 a.m. a car heading southbound on I-19 near Esperanza Boulevard struck a guard rail. The 93-year-old male driver was wearing his seat belt and not injured, the GVFD said. The crash closed the southbound left-hand lane until around 12:15 p.m.
