PHOENIX, AZ (January 19, 2022) – Saturday afternoon, Robert Moore was fatally struck by a DUI driver on Southern Avenue.

Officers responded at the 1800 block of East Southern Avenue, around 3:00 p.m.

According to reports, David Moreno was driving south on 18th Street and struck a motorcycle operated by 48-year-old Moore.
