TUCSON, Ariz. - Tucson police say an officer has been involved in a fatal accident involving a pedestrian.

Police say 34-year-old Steven Duane Rodgers was wearing dark clothing and wasn't in a marked crosswalk when he crossed Speedway about 2 a.m. Monday.

They say Rodgers was hit by a police vehicle driven by a 13-year veteran officer responding to a call of a fight involving a weapon.

Police say the cruiser had its police lights and siren on at the time of the accident.

The department is conducting a criminal and administrative investigation of the crash.
