SAN JOSE, CA (April 30, 2018) – A pedestrian collision on Tully Road claimed the life of a man, late Monday night. The victim was identified by the Santa Clara County medical examiner’s office as 48-year-old Nhan Ngo of San Jose.
According to the San Jose police, the collision took place around 10:25 PM on Tully Road, between Galveston Avenue and La Ragione Avenue. A witness stated that Ngo was crossing north on Tully when he was hit by a 2017 Nissan Rogue.
