Couple in 80s killed crossing Scottsdale street

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.

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.
