Tucson man arrested after hitting wife with truck, police say
A Tucson man driving drunk hit and killed his wife early Saturday morning, a police official said.
Todd Michael Rounds, 48, was booked into the Pima County jail and faces one count of second-degree murder in the death of his wife, 47-year old Donna Rounds.
Officers responded to a call about a car crash just before 1:30 a.m. in the 9700 block of East Sascha Street near the intersection of East Golf Links and South Harrison roads.
Todd Rounds called 911 from his home in the neighborhood to report he had been in a collision, Sgt. Chris Widmer, a spokesman for the Tucson Police Department, said in a news release.
Personnel from the Tucson Fire Department and TPD responded and found a 2000 Ford F150 Pickup truck at the home, but did not find Rounds, Widmer said.
Officers searched the neighborhood and found Rounds on a nearby street walking back toward the scene of the crash where Donna Rounds was killed.
Todd Rounds was driving his truck north on Krissy Avenue when he struck and killed his wife who was on foot just south of Vendela Street, Widmer said. Rounds drove home and called 911.
“Detectives determined that Mr. Rounds was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the collision,” Widmer said.
