At 1:30 Sunday morning, SPD was investigating a fatal collision between a cab and a pedestrian at 2100 N. Scottsdale Road.
An adult male had just left a restaurant in the area when he walked across Scottsdale Road from the west side to the east. The victim had been crossing in the middle of the block and not in a crosswalk when a Yellow Cab, driving northbound, struck him.
The victim was transported to SHC-Osborn and did not survive his injuries.
At this point, it is too early to tell if alcohol may have played a part in this incident. No citations were issued and Scottsdale Road was closed until 6:00 am for the investigation.
