According to KRIS-TV Channel 6 News, a man lost his life after being struck by a car. The fatal accident in Corpus Christi occurred Friday night, around 10 p.m., at the intersection of Waldron Road at Castle Park.
The victim, an unidentified 57-year-old man, was crossing the street in the crosswalk when the vehicle struck him. The man suffered serious injuries and was transported to a nearby hospital. Unfortunately, his injuries were too grave and he passed away.
The driver of the vehicle, a 65-year-old man, was interviewed by police and released without a citation. Police do not believe drugs or alcohol to have been a factor in the accident.
Police are speculating that the increase in traffic, due to crowds leaving the nearby Flour Bluff High School football game, may have had some influence on the accident.
Police are still investigating to further uncover how the man was struck. They are looking into visibility issues in that particular area to see what contributed to the crash.
