SAN ANTONIO – The Bexar County Medical Examiner has identified a man who was fatally struck while trying to cross a West Side street Sunday.

Charles Steven Mullen, 49, died from blunt force injuries, according to the ME.

The incident happened around 2:47 a.m. in the 7400 block of Culebra Road, between Potranco Road and Ingram Road.

Police said Mullen was crossing Culebra, from west to east, not in a crosswalk when a black 2015 Buick Enclave struck him in the roadway.

The vehicle then pulled over at a private property, called 911 and stayed at the scene for police.

Officials said Mullen was taken to University Hospital with critical injuries. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

The driver didn’t show any signs of intoxication and will not be facing any charges.
