Neighbors say crosswalk needed on West Side street where pedestrian died

Man, 75, dies after being hit by car on Guadalupe near Zarzamora

SAN ANTONIO – A 75-year-old man who was hit by a car on a West Side street Monday night has died of his injuries.

The man, whose name has not been released, was pronounced dead at a hospital several hours after the crash, which happened about 8 p.m.

San Antonio police said he was not in a crosswalk when he was hit by a Toyota Corolla in the 2500 block of Guadalupe Street near Zarzamora. 

The impact knocked the man about 20 yards. The walker he had been using ended up even farther down the road.

Alejandro DeLeon said he saw the crash and recognized the severely injured man right away.

“He was my friend for about 15 years,” he said. 

DeLeon said the man had just spent the day with him and was headed home.

The driver of the car stopped immediately after the crash and called 911, police said. He told officers he did not see the man in the street until it was too late.
