TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Tucson police arrested a man in connection with a Sunday deadly wreck near Stone and Glenn.

Police say 31-year-old Tyler Lindsey Tolleson, who was walking in the roadway at about 10:30 p.m., died when he was hit by a 2020 Nissan Altima. Tolleson was not in a crosswalk.

The driver, 25-year-old Joseph Howard Jackson, ran off. Police arrested him on charges of second-degree murder and failure to stop at a fatal collision.

Jackson was booked into Pima County Jail.

Through continued investigation, detectives gathered more information, and were able to identify the driver as 20-year-old Damorell Jantel Calhoun, according to the department. The Pima County Attorney’s Office was contacted to dismiss charges against Jackson, as he was in the vehicle at the time of the wreck, but was not the driver.

Police say after the wreck, both Jackson and Calhoun fled the scene.

On June 10, Calhoun was taken custody without incident.

He is charged with Manslaughter, Leaving the Scene of a Collision/Fatal, and Prohibited Possessor.
