Tucson police investigate pedestrian crash scene

The pedestrian was hit by a vehicle on First Avenue in Tucson on May 7, 2019.

Tucson police say a man who was struck by a truck along First Avenue earlier this month has died from his injuries. 

Around 8 p.m. on May 7, Gordon Mackey, 60, was hit by a Mazda pickup truck in the 2600 block of North First Avenue, according to a Monday Tucson Police Department press release. 

Mackey was crossing First Avenue when he was hit about 200 feet from the intersection of North First Avenue and East Jacinto Street, the release said.  

Police say Mackey was not in a crosswalk at the time of the crash. 

He was transported to the hospital, where he later died. 

The driver cooperated and police don't believe that either speed or impairment were factors in the crash.
