A woman who was struck and killed on El Camino Real has been identified as a 59-year-old Mountain View resident, according to the Santa Clara County Medical Examiner-Coroner's Office.
The woman, Mary Ellen Cabanski Evers, was hit by a white sedan heading westbound on El Camino Real at the Palo Alto Avenue intersection around 8:20 p.m. on April 13. She was pronounced dead at the scene despite life-saving efforts by the Mountain View Police Department, the Los Altos Police Department and the Mountain View Fire Department, according to Mountain View police spokeswoman Katie Nelson.
The driver of the car remained at the scene and cooperated with the police department's investigation, Nelson said. Drugs and alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the collision, she said.
The intersection does not have a crosswalk, and police department records show there has been one other vehicle collision at the intersection of El Camino Real and Palo Alto Avenue in the last two years. The closest nearby intersection, Shoreline Boulevard and El Camino, had 15 collisions between 2017 and 2018, but none of them involved a bicyclist or pedestrian, according to police department records.
The collision Saturday marks the second pedestrian fatality in Mountain View this year. In late January, a man in his 60s was struck by a vehicle heading westbound on El Camino Real near Yuba Drive around 8:50 p.m., also at a location with no crosswalk. Witnesses told police at the time that the man was seen stepping off the sidewalk and into the roadway shortly before he was hit.
The investigation into the collision that killed Cabanski Evers remains under investigation, Nelson said.
