SAN JOSE -- A man who was killed Friday night when he ran up an embankment and into traffic on Highway 87, apparently after some sort of altercation, has been identified as Alejandro Baron Sandoval, 22, of San Jose.
Meanwhile, the California Highway Patrol said Tuesday that "all involved parties have been located," including the driver of the SUV that initially struck Sandoval and then fled the scene.
Officer Peter Van Eckert said no arrests have been made, and investigators are looking into why the driver left.
"Sometimes if a person doesn't feel comfortable remaining at the scene, they can leave and contact authorities when they feel safe," Van Eckert said, adding that they are "obviously supposed to stick around" and criminal charges are possible.
The fatal accident happened around 8:15 p.m., when the man fled up an embankment near Santa Clara Street in downtown San Jose and onto the freeway after an altercation at a nearby home, authorities said.
Relatives chased Sandoval and tried to prevent him from running into traffic, but he threw a skateboard at a passing Infiniti, ran into the path of the SUV and was killed instantly, according to the CHP.
Sandoval was identified Tuesday by the Santa Clara County Medical Examiner's Office, which found his death was accidental.
