SAN DIEGO, CA — A 47-year-old man died Friday night after being struck and run over by a vehicle in San Diego’s East Village neighborhood, according to ABC10 News.
San Diego Police said the fatal incident occurred in the 1000 block of Park Boulevard, near 1000 11th Avenue. Officers were called to the scene at around 8:36 a.m.
Investigators learned that the male pedestrian, believed to be homeless, was walking along the street next to a parking garage when, for reasons still unclear, he stumbled and fell onto the driveway. Moments later, he was hit and driven over by a Camry turning right into the garage.
Authorities said the driver, a 38-year-old man, was unable to see the fallen pedestrian prior to the crash.
The victim, who suffered significant internal injuries, was rushed to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
An investigation remains in progress, but the SDPD said DUI has been ruled out as a contributing factor.
