A 48-year-old man died after being struck by a truck downtown Tuesday morning.
The crash happened west of the intersection of North Granada Avenue and West Congress Street around 6:45 a.m., when a Dodge Ram in the westbound curb lane struck the man, Officer Brandon Tatum, a Tucson police officer, said in a news release.
“The Dodge Ram was initially in the center lane heading westbound on Congress and changed lanes ending up in the curb lane before the pedestrian entered the roadway,” the release said.
The pedestrian was not in a crosswalk and police have not determined which direction the man was walking.
He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later. Police have not released the name of the man pending next-of-kin notification. The driver of the truck was not hurt and remained at the scene. No citations have been issued.
