TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - One pedestrian was killed and another was injured in an accident on Tucson’s east side late Tuesday, Sept. 20.

Police identified the deceased victim as 39-year-old Cecilia Nicole Sanchez.

The Tucson Police Department confirmed the crash happened near Pantano Road and Broadway Boulevard.

A man in his 30s was also hit and taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital, but TPD did not have an update on his status.

Police said the two were attempting to cross Pantano Road from west to east, in the northbound lanes. As they were crossing the road, a silver 2013 Toyota RAV4 struck the pedestrians as it was turning left from eastbound Broadway Boulevard onto northbound Pantano Road.

The investigation remains ongoing and no arrests or citations have been issued.
