The 63-year-old Palo Alto man who suffered critical injuries late last week after he was struck by a vehicle in Mountain View died Wednesday, according to police.
The accident occurred on July 10 at about 7:30 p.m., when the man was hit by the driver of a 2002 Honda Civic going north on San Antonio Road near El Camino Real.
Witnesses at the scene told police the man may have suffered a head injury and was unconscious but breathing. He was transported to Stanford hospital, where he was pronounced dead on Wednesday.
The man has been identified as 63-year-old Eric Palmquist, according to the Santa Clara County Medical Examiner-Coroner's office.
Police say Palmquist was traveling west across San Antonio Road near the El Camino Real intersection when he was struck by the car, causing him to hit the windshield and land on the pavement a short distance from the vehicle. He was not wearing a helmet, police said.
The driver of the vehicle, a 70-year-old Los Altos Hills man, stayed at the scene and cooperated with police throughout the investigation. The man was not injured and did not appear to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, police spokeswoman Shino Tanaka said.
Police have posted a map to give people a better idea of where the accident occurred, but additional details regarding the incident have not been released, as the case is still under investigation.
Anyone who witnessed the accident is encouraged to contact Officer Dan Garcia at 650-903-6344 and refer to case number 15-3916.
