A man who fled during a late-night traffic stop by a deputy was killed Tuesday after crashing into a guardrail on Tucson's northwest side, officials say.
A Pima County Sheriff's deputy tried to stop the vehicle for running a red light about 9:45 p.m. near North La Cañada Drive and West River Road, but Brian Hieb, 52, refused to stop, a department news release said.
He then sideswiped another vehicle and crashed into a guardrail on the east side of La Cañada and West Emerine Drive.
Hieb, the sole occupant of the vehicle, was killed in the crash. No other injuries were reported.
Anyone with information is asked to call 88-CRIME, an anonymous tipster line.
