A Pedestrian Struck By A Vehicle Lost Their Life To Their Injuries

A woman who was struck in a vehicle-pedestrian accident earlier this month has died on Monday morning.

KOLD in Tucson reports that the crash happened on the south side of the city at the intersection of South 6th Avenue and West Veterans Boulevard on April 14th.

Tucson Police investigators say that the driver of a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado was heading westbound out of the VA Hospital parking lot at Veterans Boulevard. While attempting to make a left turn onto southbound 6th Avenue, the driver of the pickup truck, struck 59-year-old Rebecca M. Labrecque while she was in 6th Avenue Crosswalk heading eastbound.

The driver of the Silverado stopped immediately and stayed at the scene of the crash.

Tucson Police received a call about the accident at approximately 8:01 a.m.  Police officers and firefighters with the TucsonFire Department responded to the scene to render aid to Labrecque. She was rushed to  Banner University Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

Officers interviewed the driver of the Silverado at the scene. It was determined that neither impairment nor speed played a role in the crash.  Authorities have not released any further information about the driver’s identity.

Eyewitnesses who were at the scene told police that the traffic signal for both east and west traffic was green when the accident occurred.

On Monday, April 27th, the Traffic Investigations Unit was informed by hospital officials that Rebecca Labrecque died as the result of injuries she suffered in the accident.

No charges have been filed at this time.
