John Walker Martin, 46, was walking at the intersection of 15th Street and San Jacinto Boulevard when the fatal crash occurred. Officials say at around 10:00 a.m., a southbound FedEx company van crashed into a car heading eastbound on 15th Street. The crash caused the car to strike the pedestrian as he crossed the street.
KXAN reports that Martin was transported to University Medical Center Brackenridge where he would die from his injuries. Both vehicles involved in the accident sustained damage. No charges have been filed yet, but the investigation is ongoing.
Texas Department of Public Safety officials say they are unsure if the pedestrian had a green or red light as he was crossing the street, reports KXAN. Martin was a program specialist with the Texas Comptroller’s Office.
