Couple in 80s killed crossing Scottsdale streetby The Associated Press on Apr. 10, 2009, under Local, Special
SCOTTSDALE — A husband and his wife, both in their 80s, are dead after they were struck by a pickup truck while crossing a street near their north Scottsdale home.
Scottsdale police spokesman Sgt. Mark Clark says it appears speed was a factor.
Clark says 82-year-old Alfred Tillman and 80-year-old Bernice Tillman were crossing 90th Street just south of Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard when they were struck about 7 a.m. Friday. Both died at the scene.
Clark says the speed limit is 35 mph in the area, but by the length of the skid marks, it appears the Toyota pickup might have been traveling faster.
Police did not immediately release the name of the 39-year-old driver, saying the accident was under investigation.
