TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Tucson police are investigating a deadly crash involving a pedestrian on the south side Monday evening.

Southbound traffic on Campbell Avenue was closed overnight at Irvington Road, according to TPD and drivers were asked to avoid the intersection.

It does not appear that impairment was a factor with the driver who remained on scene and was cooperative with authorities.

The name of the driver is being withheld pending notification of the pedestrian's next of kin.

The pedestrian, a 56-year-old male, was crossing the street and was not in a crosswalk. It has yet to be determined if the pedestrian was impaired.

The investigation is ongoing. No citations have been issued or arrests made.
