Tucson, AZ (June 24, 2019) – A serious auto accident closed the intersection of East Glenn Street and North Treat Avenue on Saturday evening, June 22nd.
The crash involved a pedestrian and shut down the intersection just before 12:00 a.m. It re-opened around 3:02 a.m. Officials asked that drivers in the area use a separate route while the auto accident was investigated. Information about those involved, as well as the condition of the pedestrian, has not been released.
Our thoughts are with the victims and their families at this time.
The number of fatalities as a result of auto accidents increased in Tucson last year. According to an Arizona Department of Transportation report that was released last week, 70 people were killed on Tucson roads last year, marking a slight increase from the 65 fatalities in the city in 2017. And with summer officially here, more traffic is on the roads, meaning a greater chance of dangerous auto accidents for vehicles, bikes, and pedestrians.
