San Jose: Man dies from injuries sustained in Aug. 23 crash

SAN JOSE – An elderly man who was hit by a motorist while riding a motorized scooter two months ago in San Jose has died from his injuries, according to police.

The traffic collision was reported shortly before 7 p.m. on Aug. 23 at Lundy Avenue and Sierra Road. In a statement Monday, the San Jose Police Department said the man was riding north on a bike lane on Lundy when he was struck by the driver of a 2007 Toyota Corolla turning right onto Lundy from eastbound Sierra Road.

The man’s life is in danger and he was taken to hospital, where he was initially stabilized. He died of his injuries on Sept. 24, but the Santa Clara County Medical Examiner’s Office did not notify investigators of the death until Oct. 14, according to police.

The death marked the 54th fatal collision and 56th road traffic fatality of the year on the city’s streets. The coroner’s office will release the man’s identity once it has been confirmed and his next of kin have been notified.

Police said the driver of the Toyota remained at the scene and was cooperating with the investigation. Alcohol and drugs are not believed to be factors in the crash.
