Benson, Arizona—Accident investigators with the Arizona Department of Public Safety report that Socorro Sotello was killed in a crash on Interstate 10 outside Benson.

According to investigators, the driver of a Dodge pickup was westbound on Interstate 10 near Ocotillo Road when he swerved sharply to avoid hitting a slower moving tractor-trailer.  In doing so, he struck a passenger car that also was traveling westbound on I-10. Ms. Sotello, the front seat passenger in the pickup truck, was killed.  

In spite of the evasive maneuver, the tractor-trailer was struck as well.  The pickup driver required extrication.  Three occupants were transported to Tucson for treatment of their injuries.

We extend our condolences to the families and friends of Ms. Sotello over this tragic loss.
