SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — A pedestrian died after being hit by a vehicle in San Jose Thursday evening, police said.
The collision happened at around 9:04 p.m. in the area of Monterey Road and San Jose Avenue just east of Highway 87.

The victim was taken to a hospital where he died of his injuries. His identity was withheld pending notification of his family members. The man who was driving the Honda remained at the scene and cooperated with investigation, and neither alcohol or drugs were believed to be a factor, police said.
