A man has died nearly three weeks after being struck by a vehicle on Tucson's south side, authorities said.

Adam Chavez, 56, died from his serious injuries Tuesday, stemming from a Sept. 13 crash in the 4800 block of South Country Club.

Tucson police detectives determined a car was northbound on Country Club when Chavez attempted to cross the road.

The driver tried to swerve to avoid the collision but was unable to maneuver in time, a police news release said.

Chavez was not in a crosswalk "painted or implied," according to the news release.

The driver, who was not injured, remained at the scene and attempted to aid Chavez until paramedics arrived.

No citations or arrests have been made as of Tuesday night. The investigation is ongoing.
