Pedestrian struck in Menlo Park crosswalk

The crosswalk across El Camino Real at Cambridge Avenue in Menlo Park did not protect a 61-year-old pedestrian from Foster City who wound up in Stanford Hospital Thursday, Feb. 22, after reportedly being struck by a vehicle driven by a 63-year-old Menlo Park man.

Menlo Park police would not release the names of the parties, but department spokeswoman Nicole Acker described the pedestrian's injuries as complaints of pain to the head, back and arm.

The driver, who was making a left turn from Cambridge onto El Camino Real, is being charged with failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk, she added.

The pedestrian was struck on his left elbow by the "side bumper" of a 1991 gray Chevrolet Caprice while crossing from the east side of El Camino Real to the west side, Ms. Acker said.

The car did not run over the pedestrian and the driver claims he didn't see him, she said.
