A pedestrian who was killed when he was hit by two cars in San Mateo on Monday morning has been identified by the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office as 58-year-old Scott Van Dyke.
Van Dyke, a San Mateo resident, was hit around 6:15 a.m. on El Camino Real near state Highway 92.
One of the motorists involved, a 35-year-old San Francisco man driving a black Honda, remained at the scene, but the other driver drove away after the collision, San Mateo police said.
That second car, a white Toyota, was tracked down shortly after the collision and the driver, a 67-year-old San Mateo man, is said to be cooperating with police.
Police said they are investigating whether Van Dyke had come from a nearby homeless encampment. He was not in a crosswalk when he was struck, police said. A stretch of El Camino Real was closed after the accident, and the California Highway Patrol initially shut down all Highway 92 ramps in that spot.
