Driver Flees After Fatal Crash in Three Points
TUCSON, AZ – One person was killed and another arrested following a two-vehicle crash in the Three Points area on Monday morning.
KGUN reports that two pickup trucks collided at about 6:37 a.m. at the intersection of South Cherokee Lane and West Scotland Road.
Deputies with the Pima County Sheriff’s Office say the driver of a Nissan pickup, 20-year-old Alejandro Herrera, drove through the northbound stop sign on Cherokee Lane and was struck by a Chevrolet Silverado. Herrera then exited his vehicle and fled the scene on foot, leaving his two passengers inside.
An adult male passenger in the Nissan was pronounced dead at the scene. The other passenger was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The sole occupant in the Chevrolet was unhurt.
Herrera was hospitalized as well at some point, although the chain of events is not clear at this time. He has since been charged with leaving the scene of a fatal collision and reckless driving.

Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
