Denver Greenberg Killed While Riding Scooter
Tucson, Arizona—Denver Greenberg, age 3, was hit and killed by a pickup truck while riding his push scooter on an early evening walk around the neighborhood with his father and brother following him. Denver entered an unmarked crosswalk just as a truck turned left onto East Banbridge Street.
Tucson Firefighters were on the scene in less than one minute, but could not save the young boy.
A memorial of stuffed animals, balloons and other toys quickly grew at the site in Rita Ranch.
Tucson Police accident investigators did not cite the truck driver, who remained at the scene. The investigation, however, remains open.
We extend our condolences to the Greenberg family and friends over this tragic loss of one so young.
