The Tucson Police Department has released the name of the man killed in a crash on Monday, Oct. 2, as 66-year-old David Rhoades. 

Officers from Operations Division West and the Tucson Fire Department responded to a serious injury collision involving a pedestrian and a minivan in the 1700 block of east Prince Road on Monday.   

EMTs arrived on scene first and rendered aid to Rhoades, sadly he was pronounced dead at the scene.
