Green Valley Fire Chief Chuck Wunder said five people were evaluated by first responders at the scene. One was critically injured and sent to Banner University Medical Center in Tucson, while another had non-life-threatening injuries and was sent to the Green Valley Hospital. The other three declined treatment. Everyone was wearing a seat belt, Wunder said.
Two people were sent to area hospitals following a four-vehicle collision on northbound Interstate 19 in Green Valley, according to the Green Valley Fire District.
The crash, which occurred north of the Esperanza Boulevard exit around 12:20 p.m. and included a semi truck, closed the left northbound lanes until around 1:45 p.m. The northbound Esperanza Boulevard on ramp was also temporarily blocked.
