Fatal San Jose Pedestrian Crash on Highway 101

SAN JOSE, CA (December 21, 2022) — A man died following a pedestrian crash on Highway 101 early Friday morning, December 16.

The fatal collision happened north of McKee Road at around 5:15 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

Authorities said the man attempted to walk across the highway from the right-hand shoulder when he came in the path of a Chevrolet Silverado, driven by a 46-year-old Union City man.

Despite attempting an evasive maneuver, the driver of the Silverado could not avoid hitting the male pedestrian. After that, the victim was struck by a second unspecified vehicle.

The man died at the scene.
