Police identified Joseph Jones, 90, as the pedestrian killed Friday in the 3800 block of Montgomery NE, Albuquerque police spokeswoman Tasia Martinez said Monday.
Jones was killed at 7:18 a.m. when he stepped into an eastbound lane while attempting to walk north across Montgomery just east of Carlisle NE, Martinez said in a written statement. APD traffic officers are investigating the fatality, she said.
A driver told police that he swerved to avoid Jones but was not able to avoid hitting him, Martinez said. The case will be forwarded to the Bernalillo County District Attorney’s Office to determine whether charges will be filed, she said.
