SAN ANTONIO – A 63-year-old man who was killed after he was struck while attempting to cross U.S. 281 near Wurzbach Parkway has been identified by the medical examiner’s office, San Antonio police said.

The ME’s office identified the victim as 63-year-old David Allan Rose.

Police said a 2008 Ford Explorer struck the man around 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 26 in the northbound lanes of the highway.

The driver told police he was in the process of changing lanes when he looked at his right-side mirror, heard his passenger scream and then looked up to see Rose in the lane.

The driver stopped after hitting Rose and showed no signs of intoxication, police said.

No criminal charges are pending. No other injuries were reported.

The accident resulted in lanes between Nakoma Drive and Bitters Road to close for several hours.
