SAN ANTONIO - One man died after a car hit him while he was standing on the side of Highway 90 on Sunday morning, according to police.

Police say a man was on the shoulder in a yellow Ford Mustang trying to merge into the main lanes when an SUV rear-ended him. The driver of the SUV got out to look at the damage, and an oncoming red vehicle hit and killed him.

The man who was hit and killed was identified by the Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office as 24-year-old David Gonzalez.

Police say Gonzalez died on the scene and the driver of the red vehicle was taken to Brooke Army Medical Center, where he remains in critical condition. The driver of the yellow Mustang was not hurt, according to police.

Police closed the westbound lanes of Highway 90, but they have since reopened.
