TULARE, CA (January 9, 2020) – A man was killed in a hit-and-run crash Thursday night at an intersection in Tulare, police said.
 
The crash happened around 6:45 p.m. at West Inyo Avenue and D Street.
 
According to police, a male pedestrian was making his way across the street near the intersection when a blue Nissan Quest minivan hit him.
 
Paramedics rushed the victim to Kaweah Delta Hospital with severe injuries. The man, identified as 61-year-old Marcelino Escobedo of Tulare, never regained consciousness and remained in critical condition. He passed away on Monday.
 
The driver involved did not stop after the crash. Instead, he continued down West Inyo Avenue.
