Tucson police say a 30-year-old man is dead after being hit by a car on the east side just before 2 a.m. Sunday morning.

Sean Rollins had just left a local bar near Speedway and Sonoita and was walking across Speedway Blvd. through the westbound traffic lanes when he was hit by a 2015 Dodge Ram pickup. Rollins was not in a crosswalk or at an intersection.

The driver of the pickup immediately stopped and cooperated with the investigation.

Rollins was taken to Banner University Medical Center with life-threatening injuries and was pronounced dead shortly after being admitted to into the hospital.

Police say based on witness statements and roadway evidence, speed does not appear to be a factor in the collision and the driver showed no signs of impairment.

No citations have been issued in this case.
