A 74-year-old man is dead following a two-car accident at Ina and Thornydale Thursday night.

Marana police have identified the man as 74-year-old Arthur Howard Sayre of Tucson. 

Sgt. Chris Warren, a spokesman for the Marana Police Department, says police and members from the Northwest Fire District responded to the area of Ina and Thornydale for a traffic collision at 6:30 p.m. 

The collision involved two vehicles and two people.

Warren says the driver of one of the vehicles was evaluated by Northwest Fire on scene but declined transport.

Sayre, the driver of the second vehicle, was transported to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead. 

Traffic detectives are continuing to investigate the cause of the collision. 

Warren says at this time, alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors.
