MANILA – A senior citizen died after he was hit by a car along Roxas Boulevard in Pasay City late Monday evening.

Jonathan Lopez, 66, was crossing a poorly lit portion of the boulevard when he was hit by a car driven by Arvin Felizardo past 11 p.m. He died on the spot.

Traffic authorities said Lopez did not use the footbridge when he crossed the road. However, Lopez's fault is not an assurance that Felizardo would be spared from criminal liabilities.

Felizardo, a respiratory therapist working at the University of Santo Tomas Hospital, was injured. He is facing a complaint for reckless imprudence resulting in homicide. – report from Francis Faulve, ABS-CBN News
