TUCSON, Ariz. — Authorities say a woman and her 7-year-old son are dead after being struck by a car in midtown Tucson.

Officers responded about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday to a serious injury collision involving two pedestrians.

Tucson Fire Department paramedics began rendering first aid to both victims before pronouncing the woman dead at the scene. The boy was taken to a hospital, where he died.

The names of the two victims haven’t been released yet.

Police say the driver of the car was an adult female who stayed at the scene and cooperated with officers.

They say she showed no signs of impairment, but it’s unclear if speed was a factor in the crash.

Police are trying to determine if the woman and her son were in a crosswalk at the time.
