TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

Authorities in Tucson say a man who appeared to step intentionally into traffic before being fatally struck by a pickup truck was a suspect in a criminal investigation.

Pima County sheriff's Deputy Tom Peine says he cannot elaborate on circumstances of 19-year-old Dimitre Thomas Makansi being a suspect in an investigation.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that witnesses told investigators that Makansi stepped in front of the pickup Wednesday.

Peine says investigators determined the driver was not at fault.
