Chandler, AZ (June 22, 22022) – As previously reported, a fatal pedestrian accident took the life of a woman in Chandler on June 20. Imari Pritchett was identified as the 23-year-old victim of that fatal traffic that occurred on Monday morning. The deadly hit-and-run accident took place in the eastbound lanes of the Loop 202 Santan Freeway near Price Road.
Preliminary reports show that the accident happened a short time after Pritchett crashed her vehicle. She exited her car to try and cross the roadway when she was hit.
The driver who struck her was identified as a 36-year-old Chandler man who was driving a 2015 Subaru Outback. He struck her in the HOV lane, according to reports. She succumbed to her injuries at the crash scene.
The man stopped and called 911, however, he did not remain at the scene. Police found his house using his phone number and apprehended him there. He faces leaving the scene of a fatal crash and DUI charges.
The eastbound lanes of the freeway were closed near McClintock Drive for several hours. Nothing further has been reported at this time.
We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of Imari Pritchett.
