TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The pedestrian killed on the south side of Tucson earlier this month has been identified.

Sgt. Pete Dugan, spokesman for the Tucson Police Department, said Rafael H. Duran died Saturday, April 8, after he was struck by two vehicles.

The accident happened around 7:30 p.m. on 6th Avenue, north of Ohio Street.

Dugan said detectives were not able to locate Duran's family, who live out of the county, until Thursday, April 13.

The TPD is still looking for the second vehicle involved in the crash, which has been described as a white sedan. Anyone with information is asked to call 88-CRIME.

Dugan said Duran, 53, was not in a crosswalk when he was struck.

The TPD said the driver of first car stayed on scene and rendered aid but before he was able to help, Duran was hit by the white sedan. The second car then fled the scene.

Speed and impairment do not appear to be factors in the crash and no citations have been issued.
