Pedestrians killed in San Jose collisions
Officers are investigating pair of fatal vehicle versus pedestrian collisions that took place overnight in San Jose, a police spokesman said.
Police responded to the area of Monterey and Senter Road at 10:41 p.m. to a report that a vehicle struck a pedestrian, according to San Jose police spokesman Albert Morales.
A man was found trapped under a vehicle and was pronounced dead a short time later, Morales said. Investigations revealed the man was crossing the street when he was struck by a vehicle similar to a Toyota RAV4 which was traveling southbound on Monterey Road.
The collision caused the pedestrian to go over the vehicle, where a second car hit him and then stopped, Morales said. The driver of the first vehicle fled and did not return, while the second driver stopped and is cooperating with the investigation, according to Morales.
A second fatal collision was reported to police in the area of McKee Road and Challenger Avenue at 12:33 a.m., where a vehicle struck a woman, according to San Jose police spokesman Albert Morales.
The woman was found in the street suffering from serious injuries, and was pronounced dead a short time after officers arrived on scene, Morales said.
Investigations revealed that the vehicle was driving westbound on McKee when it hit the woman who was walking eastbound in the westbound lane of traffic.
The driver of the vehicle stopped and is cooperating with the investigation. Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be a factor in the collision, according to Morales.
