TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Charges have been dismissed against one man and filed against another in connection with the death of a pedestrian in Tucson earlier this year.

The Tucson Police Department said evidence tied Damorell Jantel Calhoun, 20, to a crash at the intersection of Stone and Glenn on March 14.

Tyler Lindsey Tolleson, 31, was hit by a vehicle while trying to cross Stone and died.

Joseph Howard Jackson was originally arrested the night of the accident on charges of second-degree murder and failure to stop at a fatal crash.

The TPD said the new evidence put Calhoun in the driver’s seat so the charges against Jackson were dismissed. Calhoun has been charged with manslaughter, leaving the scene of a fatal collision and weapons possession.
