CAMP VERDE – Around 5:55 p.m. Dec. 21, Camp Verde Marshal’s Office deputies responded to a call of a pedestrian who had been hit by a vehicle on SR 260 at Dickison Circle in the westbound lane.
Commander Jacquelyn MacConnell said CVMO had received several calls prior about a pedestrian, who matched the description of this pedestrian, walking into traffic attempting to get hit by a vehicle.
Deputies responded to the area, said CVMO, checking the roadway and nearby businesses, but were unable to locate anyone.
