Tucson police ID woman killed in motorcycle crash

UPDATE: Tucson police search for man who fled from deadly crash last month

A woman who died a day after being thrown from a motorcycle in a crash on Tucson's north side July 29, has been identified.

Renee Doty, 37, was riding on the back of a motorcycle northbound on North Stone Avenue, near East Limberlost Drive, about 7: 40 p.m. when the motorcycle struck the back of a stalled Mercedes, Tucson police said in a news release.

Neither Doty nor the driver of the motorcycle were wearing helmets, police say.

The motorcycle driver ran off before police arrived.

Doty was taken to a hospital where she died on July 30.

The driver of the Mercedes was not injured.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to call 88-CRIME, an anonymous tipster line.
