TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — A man was hit by a vehicle Tuesday night near Grant Road and Tucson Boulevard in a Circle K parking lot Tuesday night.

It happened at around 8:30 p.m., police say. The pedestrian was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries but died from his injuries shortly after he arrived. He's identified as 28-year-old David Lamberto Munoz.

The driver remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigation, but police say a DUI officer at the scene determined the driver was impaired at the time of the crash.

Police say detectives later determined Munoz had been sitting in the parking lot and acting erratically before the crash. The driver hit Munoz when he pulled into the parking lot and dragged him as the driver pulled into a parking spot.

Charges are pending in the case, police say.
