A scary crash led to heartbreak on the city’s west side as one person died following a fatal collision.

According to the Tucson Police Department, the crash occurred on Saturday, September 1st, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. Officers from Operations Division West and Tucson Fire Department personnel responded to the scene near West Prince Road and North Columbia Avenue following reports of a serious-injury collision.

First responders quickly discovered an injured female who was transported to a nearby hospital. Although she arrived in critical condition, the victim passed away from her injuries shortly past midnight. Her identity has since been confirmed as 65-year-old Karen Snyder.

Detectives from the Tucson Police Traffic Investigations Unit headed to the scene to investigate. There they determined Ms. Snyder was crossing Prince Road southbound, east of North Columbia Avenue, and was not in a marked crosswalk when she was struck by a vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle told authorities there was not enough time to stop to avoid hitting the woman that was crossing lanes of traffic. The driver showed no signs of being impaired or speeding, and no citations or arrests have been issued as of yet.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
