Man hit by truck, killed while crossing San Jose Road--INFORMATION SOUGHT

A 34-year old man was struck by a large pickup truck and killed Monday evening while crossing Monterey Highway in San Jose, police said.

Officer Jose Garcia said the unidentified victim died at the scene shortly after 6:36 p.m. when police received a call about the accident just south of downtown San Jose. Garcia said the man apparently was crossing the busy thoroughfare near Old Tully Road when the southbound truck hit him.

Police are looking into whether he was in a crosswalk when he was hit by the Toyota Tundra. The woman driving the truck remained on the scene and cooperated with officers.

She did not appear to be driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and was not arrested, Garcia said. Police declined to identify the victim until county officials could notify his next of kin.

Monday's accident was at least the 20th pedestrian or bicyclist killed in San Jose this year. A bicyclist was killed last week on the same road.

Police are asking people with information about the collision to call the traffic investigations unit at (408) 277-4654. Those wishing to remain anonymous may call the Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers at (408) 947-STOP (7867) or may visit:
