Driver takes off after intentionally running over man in South Tucson

SOUTH TUCSON - A man died Saturday after a driver intentionally ran him over.

According to South Tucson Police, it happened around 7:45am, in the area of 5th Avenue and 31st Street.

Officers responded to a report of a man struck by a car.

They found a 43-year-old man lying in an alleyway suffering from life threatening injuries.

The name of the victim will not be released until next of kin have been notified.

Anyone with information related to this incident are urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.

A cash reward of up to $1,000 is offered for information leading to an arrest or indictment of the person involved.
