Milpitas Resident Struck and Killed by Vehicle

Sad news for Milpitas yesterday:

At around 8 in the morning, on February 21, at California Circle’s 1600 Block (where that street meets Dixon Landing Road), an 84-year-old Milpitas resident was crossing a crosswalk when a vehicle drove in and struck him.

Milpitas Police and Fire Department personnel were fast to the scene. Paramedics drove the fallen pedestrian to nearby hospital, where he passed away.

The vehicle was a white 2015 Ford F150 pickup truck. Behind the wheel was a 56-year-old man from Moreno Valley. According to police, the accident does not appear to have involved drugs or alcohol.

The driver’s been cooperating with the police. Meanwhile, the police are seeking witnesses.

  1. This accident was most likely caused by carelessness on the driver’s part. I see it all the time. People coming out of streets where they have the stop signs go ahead and pull out in front of me who has the right of way is one example.
