SAN ANTONIO – A pedestrian died Tuesday night after he was struck while trying to cross the main lanes of Loop 410 on the West Side.

San Antonio police were called just before 9:30 p.m. to the scene in the 2400 block of Loop 410 near Marbach Road.

Police said 62-year-old David Patrick Gausline was struck by a Ford Mustang that was heading northbound, but the driver of the car didn’t immediately know if he hit an object.

The driver realized he may have hit something and pulled over further down the road, police said.

He walked back and found Gausline on the ground. The driver performed CPR on Gausline until paramedics arrived.

Gausline was taken to University Hospital, where he later died.

Police said Gausline was wearing black clothing in an area of the highway that was “very dark.”

The driver is not facing any charges at this time.
