Elderly Concord resident killed while crossing street
CONCORD, Calif. -- A 78-year-old Concord man was killed Saturday morning after he was struck by an SUV in Concord, according to Concord police.
The man was walking north across Clayton Road near Denkinger Court in the crosswalk when he was struck by a 2010 Mercury Mariner driven by a 42-year-old Concord man around 8:40 a.m., police said.
The pedestrian was taken to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek with major injuries. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital, police said.
