Pedestrian hit by car dies from injuries

A 45-year-old Tucson man died Wednesday from injuries suffered when he was hit by a car a week ago, Tucson police said.

Eddie Sagastume was walking across East Grant Road at North Arcadia Avenue about 8 p.m. June 28 when he was struck, police said.

The car that hit him was in the center lane of Grant Road.

The intersection was lit and there was a marked crosswalk, police said.

An investigation is ongoing.

This was the seventh pedestrian fatality of the year, police said.
