2 Pedestrians Hit and Killed in Separate Incidents in San Jose

Two people in San Jose were hit and killed in separate incidents Monday, marking the first two pedestrian deaths on city streets this year, according to police.

A little after 9 p.m. Monday, officers responded to Monterey Highway and Blossom Hill Road, where an apparent unhoused man was struck by a 2015 semi-truck and trailer while he walked outside a marked crosswalk, police said. 

The pedestrian died at the scene, and the driver remained on scene and was cooperative, police said.

There was no indication of alcohol or drug impairment.

Earlier Monday, at about 7 a.m., a pedestrian was hit and killed while walking in a crosswalk in the area of Jackson Avenue and southbound Interstate 680, police said.

A 2011 Toyota sedan making a left turn from northbound Jackson onto the I-680 on-ramp hit a man walking southbound in the crosswalk of the on-ramp, police said. The man was taken to a hospital with major injuries and later died.

The two victims were not immediately identified.
