Menlo Park pedestrian killed in San Jose hit-and-run collision

 

A man struck and killed in a hit-and-run collision in San Jose early Saturday morning (Dec. 10) has been identified as 59-year-old Patrick Osmar of Menlo Park, according to the Santa Clara County medical examiner's office.

Officers found Mr. Osmar on the ground at East Hedding and North 15th streets shortly after 3 a.m. when they responded to a report of a person down, police said.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

An initial investigation showed Mr. Osmar was in the road when an eastbound car hit him and then left the scene, according to police.

The suspect, identified as Jonathan Espino Ruiz, was later found and arrested in connection with the collision, police said. Mr. Ruiz was booked into Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of hit-and-run and other alleged crimes unrelated to the collision, according to police.

The incident was the 42nd fatal collision on city streets this year.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call police Detective Kevin McMillin at (408) 277-4654. Those who wish to remain anonymous may call Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers at (408) 947-7867.
