Coroner’s officials Sunday identified a 77-year-old man who died Friday night after he was struck by a vehicle on the border between Costa Mesa and Newport Beach.
Carlos Romo of Newport Beach was walking near the intersection of 17th Street and Irvine Avenue that evening when he was hit by a vehicle at 8:34 p.m., Orange County Deputy Coroner Kelly Keyes said. He was taken to Orange County Global Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead about an hour later.
The driver involved in the crash was present when traffic investigators responded, Costa Mesa Police Department Sgt. Mike Manson said. Drugs or alcohol do not appear to have been factors in the collision.
