TUCSON, AZ – A man was killed and multiple others were injured during a collision involving a SunTran bus at an intersection in Tucson last weekend, according to the Arizona Daily Star.

The collision occurred at N Arcadia Avenue and E Pima Street at about 8:45 a.m. Sunday morning, when 61-year-old Clay M. Starr, operating a 2006 GMC Sierra pickup truck, allegedly ran a stop sign.

A SunTran bus then struck the driver’s side of the pickup. A third driver, operating a 2001 Ford Expedition, was forced to swerve to avoid the crash, and ended up colliding with a building nearby.

Starr died of injuries sustained during the crash.

Three people sustained minor wounds in the accident and were brought to the hospital for treatment. An undisclosed number of other people were treated at the scene by EMS staff.

Authorities continue to investigate the collision at this time.
