Tucson, AZ (December 17, 2019) – A 26-year-old man was killed in a motorcycle crash on Monday on Tucson’s east side, police say
According to officers from the Tucson Police Department, authorities were dispatched to the scene around 3:30 p.m. Witnesses say that Marco Antonio Sanchez was traveling eastbound on his motorcycle on East Grant Road near North Wilmot Road. When eastbound traffic stopped for a westbound Kia Soul to turn left, Sanchez continued on Grant Road and collided with the car as the driver turned.
Tucson paramedics arrived at the scene shortly after the wreck occurred, but Sanchez was pronounced deceased at the scene.
An officer at the scene determined the Kia driver was not impaired during the crash, though the investigation is ongoing. No charges or citations have been issued as of Tuesday afternoon.
