A pedestrian who was hit by a vehicle Friday night with life-threatening injuries was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital. The pedestrian has been identified as 42-year-old Guthrie Moreno.

According to Sgt. Pete Dugan of the Tucson Police Department, the vehicle entered the intersection of E. 29th Street on a green light and hit Moreno who was crossing S. Craycroft Rd.

The driver remained on the scene, telling police he did not see him until just before the collision occurred. Speed was not a factor and no citations were issued.
