Red Light Runner Causes Fatal Fort Lowell Vehicle Collision

Vehicles involved in Fatal collision at Ft Lowell and Tucson Blvd

On September 16, 2016, around 7:20 a.m., Tucson Police officers and members from the Tucson Fire Department responded to a report of a motor vehicle collision at E. Ft. Lowell Rd. and N. Tucson Blvd. Upon arrival, they located three vehicles involved in the collision. An adult female driver, 65-year-old Kathleen Forshay, was immediately transported to Banner University Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. Shortly after arrival at the hospital, the female succumbed to injures and was pronounced deceased.

The adult drivers of the other vehicles were not injured.

Detectives from the Tucson Police Department Traffic Investigations Unit responded to the scene to continue the investigation. They interviewed multiple witnesses and collected evidence. They were able to determine the adult male driver of a white 2008 Ford Edge Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) was eastbound on Ft. Lowell Rd. in the median lane approaching N. Tucson Blvd. The driver was traveling above the posted speed limit and struck the side mirror of a white 2016 Subaru Forester that was eastbound on Ft. Lowell Rd., slowing for a red light at Tucson Blvd. The driver of the Edge failed to stop for the red light at N. Tucson Blvd. and struck the driver’s side door of a gray 2015 Nissan Altima headed northbound on Tucson Blvd. on a green light.

The detectives are continuing their investigation. However, impairment does not appear to be a factor in this collision. No arrest or citation has been issued at this time as the investigation is ongoing.


  1. Her funeral took place today at east lawn, her remains were laid to rest in what is nothing short of vehicular murder.
    She was a wound care nurse who healed the sick and died at the hands of a total dumbas who was speeding through the streets and running red lights.
    She was enroute to a home to help someone with bandage changes. She died a needless death at the hands of someone who showed no respect for human life. Her services were very nice and she will be missed by many.
    I hope they throw him in a cage and throw away the key, I have no mercy for this POS….
    A senseless loss to the Foshay / Shute family……


  2. I travel Fort Lowell from Swan to Tucson Blvd every weekday morning . Car are always speeding and pushing on Fort Lowell and cutting cars off, never a police in sight.

  3. We have the name of the victim. Where are the names of the other’s that were involved. My suspicious nature just thought that there is something that the ADI doe not want us to know about the person that caused this destruction and lose of life. Am hoping for an update on this story in the near future.

  4. Our thoughts and prayers go out this family for their needless and senseless loss.
    Rest in peace Kathleen.
