TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - The Tucson Police Department identified the victim of a pedestrian collision that happened early Tuesday morning.
Olivia R. Mena, 50, died in the hospital on Friday, Jan. 24, 2020 from injuries she suffered after she was struck by a 2015 Toyota Tacoma on Tuesday, Jan. 21 at around 6:30 a.m., according to a TPD news release.
As the Tacoma traveled eastbound in the center lane of Grant Road, the vehicle directly in front of the Tacoma suddenly swerved. After the first vehicle swerved, Mena walked in front of the Tacoma’s path. The driver of the Tacoma attempted to swerve but struck Mena with the front passenger corner of the vehicle, according to the release.
At the time of the collision, Mena crossed Grant Road from south to north about 150 feet away from the Stone Avenue intersection.
A DUI officer determined the driver of the Tacoma was not impaired at the time of the collision and speed does not appear to be a factor in the collision.
The incident is still under investigation and officers have not issued any charges or citations, according to the release.
