John Marfin, a police sergeant from the San Antonio Police Department, released a statement saying that the victim was a 57-year-old male who was crossing the street near Bandera and Culebra roads around 8:10 p.m. when was struck and killed by an SUV.
A bystander, who saw the victim lying on the ground, tried to perform CPR on him in an attempt to revive and resuscitate him but was unsuccessful. The victim had already died from his injuries.
The driver who was driving the SUV stayed at the scene to cooperate with police. So far, as the investigation continues, police have only regarded the incident as an accident. Police are still looking into why the victim did not use a protected pedestrian crosswalk.
