Hit and run accident

TUCSON - Wednesday Tucson Police Department responded to a deadly hit and run on Campbell south of Irvington.

Police said a drag race ended with a man being hit and killed.

TPD is looking for the people who took off from the scene of the accident.

We talked with one neighbor who said he heard it all from his backyard.

"We didn't even hear any brakes it was just like boom one big bang and that was it," said Sabino Flores.

H has been living in the neighborhood for over 20 years and has watched it change.

"In the last four or five years there has been a lot of racing going on you can always hear the cars loudly. I mean it's not quiet like it was 8 or 9 years ago now it's pretty loud," said Flores.

Police said the racing turned deadly in the middle of the afternoon.

Flores continued to listen moments after the crash and said he heard as the people left the scene.

"They were saying lets go, lets go, lets get away, lets go, lets go. It sounded like a girl's voice, a guy's voice high pitched but they were trying to get away definitely screaming trying to get away. I could hear that clearly from the backyard," said Flores.

Tucson Police said a white car and black Honda were racing when the white car lost control and hit and killed a young man.

Within moments the black car returned to pick up the people in the white car.

TPD said shortly after the accident the white car was reported stolen.

"At this point we don't believe it was maybe somebody involved in the accident who later reported it. We do believe it was a true stolen vehicle," said Trish Tracy with TPD.

At this time police are still looking for those people who took off in the black Honda. They believe there was a man possibly two and a woman in that white car.

If anyone has information they are asked to call 911 or 88 crime.
