San Antonio, TX (1/17/2020) – A pedestrian was hit and killed while crossing a dark street in San Antonio late Wednesday.
The accident happened around 9 p.m. when a pedestrian was hit by a Chevrolet Silverado while crossing Culebra Road near Loop 1604. He did not cross at a designated crosswalk.
The man was taken to University Hospital, where he later died.
The driver of the truck was not injured.
According to police, the area was “extremely dark” due to the lack of lights not being lit.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
