TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - A pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle in late October has died, police said.

Police say 24-year-old Gabriel Anthony Rodriguez died of his injuries on Wednesday, Nov. 16.

The crash happened at the intersection of Broadway Boulevard and Randolph Way at about 8:15 p.m. on Oct. 29.

Police say Rodriguez was crossing Broadway Boulevard when he was struck by an eastbound 2015 Toyota Corolla. He was not in a crosswalk. The 30-year-old male driver of the Corolla immediately stopped after the collision and cooperated with the investigation. An officer from the Impaired Driver Enforcement Unit determined that the driver was not impaired by drugs or alcohol.

Rodriguez was taken to Banner-University Medical Center.

Mid-block crossing was listed as the major contributing factor in the collision. The investigation remains ongoing, but police say it is unlikely that any charges or citations will be issued.

This pedestrian death is the 41st in Tucson in 2022, compared with 23 on the same date last year.
