TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Pima County deputies identified the man killed in a motorcycle accident Tuesday.
 
Deputy Jesus Banuelos with the Pima County Sheriff's Department says 66-year-old Edward Rexford Mills VI died following a single-vehicle motorcycle accident that occurred at around 11:00 a.m. Tuesday near Contractors Way and Illinois Street. 
 
Mills was riding a motorcycle, traveling northbound on Contractors Way, when he hit a retaining wall, Banuelos said.
