TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — The Pima County Sheriff's Department responded to a crash Tuesday night just after 11:30 p.m. at the intersection of Los Reales Road and Camino Libertad.

According to PCSD, a 38-year-old man identified as Robert Valenzuela struck a pedestrian with his vehicle and then left the scene.
