San Rafael Commercial Vehicle vs. Pedestrian Collision Fatality - Identity Released

The decedent has been positively identified as:                                                                           

Elida Delgado RODRIGUEZ, a 73-year-old female from San Rafael, CA.

On Tuesday morning May 18, 2021, at approximately 08:05 AM it was reported to 9-1-1- a pedestrian was struck by a commercial vehicle at the intersection of Fourth Street and  G Street in downtown San Rafael.  During the preliminary scene investigation, it was learned the subject was a pedestrian located on the southeast corner of Fourth Street attempting to cross G Street to the westbound side.  A commercial vehicle travelling north on G Street stopped for a fixed traffic control device at the southeast corner of the crossing prior to proceeding through the intersection, across Fourth Street.  The driver reportedly did not see the pedestrian and she was stuck by the commercial vehicle resulting in her becoming unconscious and unresponsive.  9-1-1 was phoned and First Responders immediately summoned to the scene to provide medical aid.  Paramedics arrived on the scene shortly after and discovered the subject to be in cardiopulmonary arrest.  Resuscitative aid was provided on the scene and despite these efforts, the subject failed to respond and her death was pronounced on the scene.  The vehicle driver remained on the scene and was cooperative with the ensuing investigation.  

The decedent has been positively identified as:                                                                           

Elida Delgado RODRIGUEZ, a 73-year-old female from San Rafael, CA.

 A forensic post mortem examination with toxicology testing is scheduled for later this week.  The cause and manner of death will be pending the conclusion of the investigations being completed by the San Rafael Police Department and the Marin County Sheriff’s Office - Coroner Division.  No further information will be released by the Coroner Division at this time, as this is an active and ongoing investigation.  Any further questions regarding the incident should be directed to the San Rafael Police Department.

The Marin County Sheriff’s Office and personnel of the Coroner Division offers our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Mrs. Rodriguez.
