Pedestrian struck by car, killed

A Tucson man walking along a dark road against traffic was hit and killed by a car in Sahuarita on Sunday night, a Sahuarita police spokesman said.

The man was Eddie Contreras, 42, of Tucson, said Officer Sam Almodova. The name of the driver who hit him is being withheld as an investigation continues, said Sgt. Matt McGlone, another Sahuarita police spokesman. Almodova said the driver was a 42-year-old Tucson woman.

Contreras was walking south on South Nogales Highway near Pima Mine Road on a narrow shoulder and had stepped onto the roadway when he was hit about 11:25 p.m. by a northbound car, McGlone said.

Contreras died at the scene, McGlone said.

The driver called 911 to report the accident, McGlone said.

No citations have been issued pending completion of the investigation, McGlone said Monday. Almodova said he expected the woman would not be cited.

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.
