The accident occurred at the intersection of Fair Street and Gail Gardner at about 10:45 a.m. on Thursday.   Mr. Farster was crossing Gail Gardner in a marked crosswalk when he was hit by a pickup truck driven by Clifford Post that was turning onto Gail Gardner.

Following the accident, Mr. Farster was transported to Flagstaff Medical Center where he passed away due to his injuries.
