TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - One man is facing charges after he allegedly killed someone in a hit-and-run crash late Friday, Dec. 31.

Roberto Alfredo Lara, 35, is charged with leaving the scene of a fatal collision and failure to render aid.

The Tucson Police Department said it happened around 6 p.m. in the 3200 block of North Stone Avenue.

Manfred G. Rivas, 49, died at a local hospital.

According to the TPD, Rivas was trying to cross Stone Avenue when he was hit by a white passenger vehicle. While on the ground, Rivas was hit by a second vehicle. Neither vehicle remained at the scene.

The TPD said Rivas was not in a crosswalk.

Traffic detectives say they determined a white Nissan Rogue SUV hit Rivas first before he was hit by a white Saturn Ion. As of Monday, Jan. 10, police had not identified the Nissan, but believe it has significant damage to the front bumper.
