Mihir Dixit Killed in Car Accident on Oracle Road
Tucson, Arizona—Officers with the Tucson Police Department responded to the scene of a single-vehicle accident on Oracle Road and Auto Mall Drive at about 11:45 p.m. on Saturday. Mihir Dixit, age 23, was one of three occupants in the car driven by Anthony Hall, age 18. Mr. Dixit was found deceased in the rear seat. An adult female in the front seat was seriously injured, yet is expected to recover.
According to accident investigators, Hall reportedly was speeding southbound on Oracle Road in the median lane in a silver Infiniti G35. He lost control of his car when he passed a vehicle while changing lanes and struck a metal utility pole on the southwest corner. Hall was hospitalized for treatment of his injuries then arrested and booked into Pima County Jail. Hall faces felony charges of second degree murder and aggravated assault resulting in serious injury. Speed and alcohol appear to be factors contributing to the accident. The investigation is ongoing.
