Northwest fire units responded to Tangerine Road and Dove Mountain Blvd. just after 9 a.m. this morning in response to a dump truck accident.

Units arrived and found a tandem dump truck that had lost control and veered off Tangerine Road. No other vehicles were involved.

The back trailer of the tandem dump truck came to rest on top of the front portion of the truck.  Both sections of the truck had serious damage.

The truck was eastbound on Tangerine and lost control into the desert south of Tangerine and West of Dove Mountain.

The driver, a 67 year-old male, was wearing a seatbelt at the time and suffered minor injuries.  He was treated by NWFD paramedics and released at the scene.

No roadway closures occurred as a result of the incident.

The Marana Police Department was on scene to conduct an investigation into  what caused the truck to leave the roadway.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
