A pedestrian was hit by a vehicle and suffered life-threatening injuries in Tucson late Friday night, authorities said.

Sgt. Pete Dugan, spokesman with the Tucson Police Department, said the accident happened on East Wetmore Road near First Avenue.

As of 12:30 a.m. Saturday, all eastbound lanes of Wetmore were closed from North First Avenue to North Stone.
