Autopsy results show that the driver of a vehicle who caused a deadly head-on collision on Highway 90 near Airport Road on Nov. 26, 2019, had a high level of methamphetamine in her blood at the time of the crash.

The driver who caused the collision, 40-year-old Whetstone resident Lisa Martinez, had been traveling south on Highway 90 near Airport Road when she crossed the center line and struck another vehicle traveling in a northbound lane. Both Martinez, and the other driver, 65-year-old Sierra Vista resident John Bolgen, died as a result of collision.

Sierra Vista Police Department accident reconstructionists estimate that both vehicles were traveling at about 60 mph at the time of the crash.
