San Antonio Pedestrian Hit and Run Accident Kills Homeless Man

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 10-Oct-2012

A pedestrian accident in San Antonio claimed the life of a homeless man when he was struck by a pickup truck while crossing the street near Walzem and Montgomery by HEB on Tuesday night, police said.

Although the man’s name has not been revealed, witnesses said they recognized him as a homeless man who frequented the area. Police said he was approximately 60-years-old.

The driver involved in the hit and run accident in San Antonio left the scene. The man who was struck was pronounced dead at the scene of the pedestrian accident in San Antonio, Tx.

Witnesses were able to provide authorities with a partial portion of the silver Ford pickup truck’s license plate and officials are looking into gaining more information from HEB security camera footage.

The pedestrian accident occurred around 7:30 p.m., police said.

Because of the high levels of foot traffic, public transportation and tourist attractions, larger cities and metropolitan areas are sometimes plagued by pedestrian accidents. In some situations, when a driver and people surrounding stop and offer aid to the victims of a pedestrian accident, they may be able to quickly receive the medical attention they need. In contrast, some victims may experience more serious injuries as a result of not receiving immediate help or medical care.
