TUCSON, AZ - Investigators with the Tucson Police Department are looking into the cause of a crash that took the life of a pedestrian over Labor Day weekend.
According to KOLD News 13, officials responded to a serious injury accident involving pedestrians in the 3200 block of West 36th Street on September 6.
Emergency services reported seven victims at the scene, including four pedestrians and three occupants of a Dodge pickup truck. One of the pedestrians, 42-year-old Oscar Zazueta Martinez, was pronounced dead at the scene. All others involved were treated for injuries that were deemed non-life-threatening.
Police reports suggest the driver of the truck was speeding in the westbound lanes of 36th Street when they struck Martinez and the other pedestrians who were standing near a parked vehicle. The truck then careened into a group of large boulders before overturning in the desert.
Officials believe excessive speed was the main contributing factor in the crash. However, the investigation remains underway. KOLD News 13 did not specify whether charges had been filed.
