Glendale, Arizona—Carlos Chavez Aguirre, age 39, lost his life while saving his daughter Saturday night.  The pair was crossing the street near 49th Avenue and Glendale Avenue at about 7:15 p.m. when the accident occurred. 

Mr. Aguirre’s family believes that Carlos saw an approaching pickup truck and pushed his 17-year-old daughter to safety, taking the full brunt of the collision.   His daughter escaped with a fractured collarbone.  The pickup driver sped away from the scene.

Police are searching for a lifted 2003 to 2006 Chevy Silverado single cab pickup truck, dark brown in color with large wheels.  Anyone with information is urged to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.  The family has established a GoFundMe page.

We extend our condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Aguirre over this tragic loss and we wish his daughter a swift and full recovery.
