Man killed in chase had warrants out

Citizen Staff Writer



A man who died Tuesday in a crash while fleeing Pascua Yaqui police Tuesday was identified Wednesday as a tribal member.

Orlando Gonzales Salcido, 26, was killed about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday when he lost control of his car while fleeing a Pascua Yaqui officer who tried to stop him, Pima County sheriff’s spokeswoman Deputy Dawn Barkman said.

The tribal officer spotted Salcido on the road and recognized him as someone sought on arrest warrants, Barkman said.

Interim Pascua Yaqui Police Chief Tracy Nielsen said one warrant charged four counts of domestic violence in connection with disorderly conduct, assault, aggravated assault and endangerment.

Another warrant, Nielsen said, charges Salcido with leaving the scene of an injury collision.

The pursuit began on tribal land at West Tetakusim Road and South Camino de Oeste and continued until Salcido crashed into a Jeep parked in the driveway of a home in the 3700 block of Tetakusim, Barkman said.

The force of the impact knocked the Jeep into the home, and Salcido’s car ended up in an adjacent concrete culvert, Barkman said.

Deputies found Salcido dead in his car. No other injuries were reported.

Man killed in police chase crash was Pascua Yaqui

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.
