A man was struck and killed by a car while crossing a street in San Bruno on Sunday afternoon, according to San Bruno police.
The San Francisco Medical Examiner’s office identified the man as Bernabe Lactawen, a 57-year-old San Bruno resident.
Lactawen was crossing El Camino Real at Jenevein Avenue against a red light around 3:45 p.m. when he was hit by a car, according to police.
Although Lactawen was within a crosswalk when he was hit, he was known to wander out into the street without looking, said San Bruno police Lt. Troy Fry.
“It’s just really unfortunate that this happened and it doesn’t appear that there was anything the driver could do,” Fry said.
Emergency responders transported Lactawen to San Francisco General Hospital, where he died from major head injuries a short time later, according to police.
The driver involved in the collision, a Tracy resident, was not arrested or cited and investigators do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor.
The collision remains under investigation.
