A man struck by a hit-and-run driver in San Jose earlier this month succumbed to his injuries at a hospital Wednesday, police said.
The collision was reported shortly before 5 p.m. on Aug. 4 in the 2000 block of Monterey Road.
The man, whose name is not immediately being released, was walking across the northbound lanes of Monterey Road outside of a crosswalk when a silver 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer struck him. He was taken to a hospital and died there Wednesday.
Later on Aug. 4, police tracked the Chevrolet driver, Roberto Figueroa, to a home in San Jose and arrested him, according to police.
The fatal collision is the 39th on San Jose city streets in 2021. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Detective Bowen at (408) 277-4654 or the Crime Stoppers tip line at (408) 947-7867.
