A pedestrian died after being struck by a pickup truck on Tucson’s southwest side Wednesday morning.

Brett Navarrete, 34, was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, a news release from the Pima County Sheriff’s Department said.

Around 3 a.m., deputies responded to a crash involving a pedestrian at Valencia Road and Camino de la Tierra. The driver of the pickup truck was heading eastbound on Valencia Road when he struck Navarrete, the news release said.
