On November 15, 2014, at approximately 7:56 PM, deputies with the Sheriff’s Rincon Patrol District responded to the report of a collision at the intersection of N. Sabino Canyon Road and E. Knollwood Drive. Upon arrival, they found two vehicles had collided in the intersection. It was determined a sedan, occupied by the driver and two passengers, had travelled southbound on Sabino Canyon Road. The other car, a Toyota SUV, was occupied by only the 90-year-old driver. The SUV made a left turn onto River Road, crossing into the path of the southbound vehicle. The driver of the Toyota was transported to the Tucson Medical Center, where he was later pronounced deceased. Deputies with the Sheriff’s Traffic Unit responded to the incident location as well and took over the investigation. The deceased was identified as John Clair Pfeffer. The investigation is still ongoing.
