Driver Strikes, Kills Pedestrian in Mountain View
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA (March 26, 2019) – A pedestrian who ran across Highway 101 near Rengstorff Avenue died after a driver in an SUV struck him Sunday night.
According to California Highway Patrol Officer James Evans, the incident unfolded around 7:00 p.m. and drew CHP officers to the scene. When officers arrived, witnesses informed them that a pedestrian ran from the right side of the road toward the center divider. In the No. 1 northbound lane, a white 2001 Subaru Forester struck the man, causing him major injuries.
Firefighters coupled with officers at the scene and ushered the victim, described as a transient in his 20s, to Stanford Hospital. However, despite life-saving efforts, the man died soon after.
The 22-year-old Hayward man driving the SUV escaped injury but was pretty shaken up, according to investigators. CHP further adds that neither alcohol nor drugs played a role.
Now, authorities are asking witnesses to call CHP Officer Matt Balvin at 650-369-6261 if they know anything pertaining to this crash.
