TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Police say a woman who was struck by a Tucson Police Department patrol vehicle died as a result of her injuries.

The woman, 64-year-old Pamela Lee Marshall, was struck by the TPD vehicle, a 2008 Ford Crown Victoria, on Thursday evening, Nov. 10. Police were notified on Tuesday, Nov. 15, that she died.

Officers said the woman was hit just after 6 p.m. near the intersection of Grant Road and Oracle Road. She was taken to Banner-University Medical Center to be treated for life-threatening injuries.

Witnesses told detectives that Marshall stepped off the median into the eastbound lanes of Grant Road and was struck by the patrol vehicle. The patrol vehicle struck Marshall with its front passenger side.

Marshall was mid-block crossing and not in a crosswalk, police said. It was determined that the driver was not impaired at the time of the collision. The officer was not injured.

Anyone who may have information on the incident is asked to call 88-CRIME.

Detectives are continuing the investigation while the Office of Professional Standards conducts a separate administrative investigation into the actions of department personnel.

This pedestrian death is the 40th in Tucson in 2022, compared with 23 on the same date last year.
