Tucson Man Dies From Injuries Sustained In September

On September 13, 2018, at around 9:00 p.m., Tucson Police officers and members from the Tucson Fire Department responded to a report of a serious-injury collision involving a pedestrian, 56-year-old Adam Chavez, in the 4800 block of South Country Club Road.

On October 2, 2018, Mr. Chavez had passed away from the injuries sustained in the collision.

Detectives learned that the driver of a 2017 Hyundai Forte, was driving northbound on South Country Club Road as Mr. Chavez was crossing the road from east to west. Mr. Chavez was not in a crosswalk (painted or implied). The driver attempted to swerve to avoid the collision but was unable to maneuver in time, striking Mr. Chavez. The driver pulled over and began to render aid to Mr. Chavez until officers and Tucson Fire arrived. The driver was not injured.

Neither speed nor impairment were a factor in this collision. The investigation is on-going and no citations or arrests have been made at this time.
