TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Investigators with the Tucson Police Department are searching for a driver involved in a fatal pedestrian hit-and-run collision that happened downtown early Saturday morning.
Late Saturday night officers identified the victim in that crash as 50-year-old Stanley Torinese, Jr.
They responded to a report of a middle-aged man who had stumbled into the road near the intersection of Congress Street and Sixth Avenue around 2:40 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 30, 2019. Torinese laid in the street for a while, police said, and pickup truck ran him over and continued driving westbound on Congress.
