Pedestrian killed on El Camino Real in San Mateo
December 02, 2013, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

A pedestrian who was killed when he was hit by two cars in San Mateo this morning has been identified by the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office as 58-year-old Scott Van Dyke.

Van Dyke, a San Mateo resident, was hit around 6:15 a.m. on El Camino Real near State Route 92.

One of the motorists involved, a 35-year-old San Francisco man driving a black Honda, remained at the scene, but the other driver drove away, San Mateo police said.

That second car, a white Toyota, was tracked down shortly after the collision and the driver, a 67-year-old San Mateo man, is cooperating with police.

Police said they are investigating whether Van Dyke had come from a nearby homeless encampment. He was not in a crosswalk when he was struck, police said.

A stretch of El Camino Real was closed after the accident, and the California Highway Patrol initially shut down all State Route 92 ramps in that spot.

All roads were back open by about 11 a.m.
