Police look for hit-and-run driver in death of woman, 56

Catherine Gersey struck on East Pima Street

Police are looking for a driver who left the scene after a 56-year-old Tucson woman was struck by an SUV while crossing East Pima Street and died Sunday.

Catherine Gersey of Tucson may have been staying with a friend near where she was struck, Sgt. Mark Robinson said.

She was in a crosswalk in the 6100 block of East Pima, at North Rook Avenue, when she was hit about 5:50 p.m, police said.

Witnesses told police the woman was struck by a dark-colored sport utility vehicle, whose driver slowed and then sped away, Robinson said. The SUV may have windshield and hood damage.

Robinson, a police spokesman, said Gersey was heading north when she was hit while in the westbound curb lane.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
