The victims of a fatal three-vehicle crash in Oro Valley earlier this week have been identified as 85-year-olds Richard and Marjory Brown.

On Wednesday, August 21 around 9 a.m. the Browns were struck in their Toyota Rav 4 going east on Tangerine Road approaching La Canada when a white Ford Raptor, driven by a 19-year-old male, made a u-turn and collided with them. 

The Rav 4 was pushed into the adjacent lane in the path of an oncoming tow truck also traveling east, causing the Browns to hit a tree, according to a OVPD press release. 

Richard Brown was pronounced dead on the scene and Marjory Brown was taken to Banner UMC where she later succumbed to her injuries. 

The two other individuals had non-life threatening injuries.  

The investigation is ongoing and drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor. No citations have been issued at this time.
