Investigation into March 7 Fremont traffic fatality continuing

FREMONT — The police investigation into the death of a pedestrian March 7 who died after he was hit by a car while crossing a street is continuing and witnesses are still being sought .
The name of the man killed, who police said was a Fremont resident in his 60s, has not been released by the coroner’s office yet pending notification of family.
The fatal collision was reported at 7:34 p.m. March 7 at the intersection of Mission and Warm Springs boulevards. In a news release Wednesday, police said the collision was captured on city community cameras and video from a Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority bus. The release said the video showed the signal light cycled to green for southbound vehicular traffic and the pedestrian light also cycled for crossing.
The pedestrian started walking within the crosswalk and as he was crossing he was almost hit by a vehicle turning right from southbound Warm Springs to westbound Mission, the release said. Immediately after that, as the man continued crossing, he was hit by a 2000 Lexus sedan turning right onto Mission, the release said. The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Lexus driver remained at the scene, and while it is not believed alcohol or drugs were a factor, he submitted to a blood test, the release said. Those results are still pending.
Anyone with information about the fatality is asked to call police traffic investigator M. Ramsey at 510-790-6760 or MRamsey@fremont.gov.
