A crash at McDonalds on the corner of Kolb and Tanque Verde claimed the life of a pedestrian and injured several other people.

TPD says the driver of a 2005 Toyota Highlander was attempting to turn onto Tanque Verde from Kolb, when the driver lost control of his vehicle.

The vehicle left the roadway hitting a pedestrian standing on the sidewalk.

We're told after hitting the pedestrian the vehicle continued through a fence and crashed into the McDonalds causing serious injuries.

The pedestrian, later identified as 54-year-old Barbara Angiolini, died on scene from injuries.

"Just a very, very sad incident today," Sgt. Pete Dugan said.  "You had a pedestrian that was waiting to cross traffic and was struck by this vehicle that lost control."

The driver and passenger were transported to the hospital with serious injuries.

Three customers inside the McDonalds at the time of the crash sustained minor injuries from flying debris. They were not transported to the hospital.

The cause of the crash is under investigation as detectives speak with witnesses in the restaurant.

Tucson Police have determined the driver was not under the influence at the time of the collision, but speed is a factor. 

"The vehicle actually went through the rod iron fencing and into the McDonald's," Dugan said. "There was significant speed involved, we just don't know how fast that is."
