Pedestrian killed in San Mateo near highway intersection
December 03, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal staff report

A pedestrian was killed in San Mateo yesterday morning after being struck by at least one vehicle on El Camino Real, according to the San Mateo Police Department.

The 58-year-old victim, Scott Van Dyke, may have lived in a nearby homeless encampment and was not in a marked crosswalk at the time of the collision, according to police.

The collision occurred around 6:15 a.m. in the southbound lanes of El Camino Real immediately south of the State Route 92 overpass, according to police.

One of the motorists involved, a 35-year-old San Francisco man driving a black Honda, remained on scene while a 67-year-old San Mateo man driving a white Toyota fled. He was located later on and may face hit-and-run charges, according to police.

The two drivers involved in the accident are now cooperating with the investigation. All fatal traffic investigations are handed over to the District Attorney’s Office and appropriate charges will be determined at a later date, according to police.

The accident closed off the southbound lanes of El Camino Real between Borel and 20th avenues, as well as all State Route 92 ramps in the area. All roads were reopened around 10:40 a.m., according to police.

It was dark at the time of the collision and police remind drivers and pedestrians to remain cautious and travel safely.
