91-Year-Old Dies After Being Hit By Elderly Mountain View Driver
MOUNTAIN VIEW (CBS SF) – A 91-year-old man who was hit by a car in Mountain View on Monday died at Stanford Hospital that evening, police said Tuesday.
At 5:40 p.m., officers responded to a report that a car hit a man at the intersection of El Camino Real and The Americana.
A 78-year-old driver from Sunnyvale was turning from The Americana onto eastbound El Camino Real in a 1997 white Toyota pickup truck when he struck the Mountain View man, who police say may have been crossing the street.
It is unclear if the pedestrian was in the crosswalk. It also is unclear who was at fault.
The pickup driver stayed after the crash and cooperated with the investigation, police said. Drugs and alcohol do not appear to have been a factor.
The Mountain View Police Department is trying to find witnesses to help determine what caused the collision. Anyone with information is asked to contact traffic Sgt. Bryan Albarillo at (650) 903-6733.
