Pedestrian Was Killed Crossing 22nd Street in Tucson

Man Was Struck in Street Near Bus Lane

The Tucson Police Department is investigating an accident where a pedestrian was killed while crossing East 22nd Street.  The accident occurred right across the Church's Chicken located at 3970 East 22nd Street in Tucson, Arizona.  Mr. Pedregon was close to the bus lane, where vehicles are not allowed to travel, when he was struck by a 1973 Ford F-150.  The truck was traveling eastbound on East 22nd Street at the time of the collision.  Mr. Pedregon was taken to Banner University Medical Center.  Unfortunately, the doctors at UMC could not save his life.   Mr. Pedregon succumbed to his injuries less than an hour after his arrival to the hospital.

Fatal Hit-and-Run Collision with Pedestrian

Despite incorrect initial reports, the driver did leave the scene and parked his vehicle close to the Fry's Food And Drug Store gas station located at 7050 East 22nd Street.  The driver came back to the scene of the accident after more than 15 minutes and the pedestrian did not receive emergency medical assistance during that time.  The driver of the truck has not yet been cited for the hit-and-run. Nevertheless, it is against the law to fail to control your vehicle to avoid an accident.  Hence, there may be a legal theory to sue the driver in this case.

Victim's Family Was Contacted Soon After Pedestrian Was Killed

Mr. Pedregon is survived by his wife and his four siblings.  He was married just 5 years before the accident.  Mr. Pedregon's family was contacted that same day on Saturday, July 30, 2016, within an hour of the accident, and they were told about the tragic accident.  The accident is still under investigation at this time by the Tucson Police Department.  All witnesses should contact the Tucson Police Department to help law enforcement determine the cause of the accident.
