Phoenix, AZ (July 14, 2019) – One woman was struck and killed in a crash near Indian School Road and 75th Avenue on Saturday night, July 13th.
According to Phoenix Police, 43-year-old Norah Gonzales was crossing Indian School Road mid-block when she was hit by a Dodge Charger. Gonzales was pronounced dead on the scene.
The driver of the charger stopped and stayed on the scene, and investigators say that impairment or speed did not appear to be factors in the wreck. Officials are still investigating the cause of the wreck at this time and have not released the driver’s identity or current condition.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Norah Gonzales at this time.
