20-Year-Old Man Dead after Pedestrian Collision on East Speedway Boulevard

TUCSON, AZ (January 22, 2022) – Early Saturday morning, 20-year-old Benjamin Wolfe Davis died in a crash on Mountain Avenue.

Around 1:43 a.m., officers responded to the scene at the intersection of North Mountain Avenue and East Speedway Boulevard.
