TUCSON, Ariz. - A man is dead after he was hit by a car on Tucson's south side Saturday evening.

It happened at the intersection of West Valencia Road and South Missiondale Road at around 6:34 p.m. According to Tucson Police Department traffic detectives, 44-year-old Troy Scott Daniel Martini was crossing the intersection -- which has no crosswalk -- when he was hit by a car.

The driver immediately stopped and cooperated with police, and investigators say they don't consider impairment or speed to be factors in the crash.

Martini is the 28th pedestrian killed in a crash in Tucson so far this year.
