San Jose's ninth 2022 traffic death happened yesterday after a North Jackson Avenue and Mather Drive crash, per the San Jose Police Department.
A gentleman pedestrian was crossing North Jackson when a Toyota SUV hit him. It is alleged that the Toyota SUV driver had the green light, and the man was walking outside of a crosswalk. The SUV driver initially left the East San Jose accident scene, but later returned and cooperated with authorities.
The gentleman pedestrian was rushed to a nearby hospital where he tragically succumbed to his injuries. His name is not yet released, pending notification of his next of kin.
My heart goes out to the man whose life was lost in this traffic accident.
