The man who was killed when he was hit by a car while walking in Mountain View Monday night has been identified as 26-year-old Eric Onorato of Mountain View, a police spokeswoman said.
The collision was not a hit-and-run; the driver stayed on the scene and was very cooperative with investigators, Wylie said. "He was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol," she said.
The driver had been traveling north on North Shoreline Boulevard in a Ford pickup truck when he hit the man just after Wright Avenue.
The man was pronounced dead on the scene, Wylie said. He was not carrying identification, and was not dressed as a runner, she said. "It is certainly possible he was out for a jog in non-traditional running garb, but I cannot confirm that because we do not know at this point. He was wearing pajama-type pants," Wylie said Tuesday afternoon.
Police stayed on the scene investigating overnight, and northbound North Shoreline Boulevard was shut down through the night, Wylie said.
"It is unclear at this point in time where the pedestrian was or what his actions were just prior to being hit by the truck," she said.
In the wake of the incident, police sought, and were eventually contacted by, a woman who had performed CPR on the victim before officers arrived at the scene of the accident, Wylie said. The woman left as soon as police took over emergency procedures, and she was not initially identified.
After seeing media reports noting that police needed her help, the woman contacted the Mountain View Police Department, Wylie said.
Anyone else who witnessed the accident is encouraged to call police at 650-903-6344.
