SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — A pedestrian killed at a construction site on the San Jose City College campus on Tuesday has been identified by the Santa Clara County medical examiner’s office as 49-year-old Magda Gonzalez.
Gonzalez, a San Jose resident, died after being hit when a front loader backed up onto a walkway at the college, located at 2100 Moorpark Ave., school officials said.
San Jose-Evergreen Community College District Chancellor Rita Cepeda said Gonzalez died after being transported to Santa Clara Valley Medical Center.
San Jose City College President Byron Breland said the accident happened as crews were digging to gain access to an underground water valve for a campus construction project.
Gonzalez was struck between the fine arts building and the vocational training center, he said.
