SAN ANTONIO — A man in his 50s is dead after he attempted to cross the road without using a crosswalk, police say.
The pedestrian has since been identified as Edwardo Escamilla, 61.
SAPD, SAFD, and EMS were called out to Blanco Road and Fresno Road around 9:30 p.m. Friday.
At the scene, first responders found Escamilla lying in the street with severe trauma. Despite attempted life-saving measures, the man died at the scene.
An SAPD spokesperson said that Escamilla attempted to cross Blanco in an area without a crosswalk when a red four-door car hit him.
The driver told police that he did not see Escamilla.
Intoxication was not a factor in the crash. The driver was released at the scene and was not criminally charged.
