MILLBRAE -- An 81-year-old man hit and killed while crossing a street Sunday night in Millbrae was identified as San Francisco resident Sinil Park, the medical examiner said.

Park was crossing El Camino Real at Millwood Drive at 5:37 p.m. when he was hit by a black Nissan SUV driving north in the left lane, San Mateo County Sheriff's spokeswoman Rebecca Rosenblatt said. While there is no stoplight or stop sign at the intersection where Park was hit, there is a crosswalk, Rosenblatt said, and authorities are investigating whether the man was walking inside of it when he was hit.

Park was taken to the trauma center at San Francisco General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead of his injuries, Rosenblatt said. The driver of the Nissan was not injured and cooperated with officers after stopping at the scene.

According to Rosenblatt, the 50-year-old San Bruno woman displayed no obvious signs of intoxication, though a chemical sample was taken at the scene as part of investigators' standard procedure.

Anyone with information about the crash may contact the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office at 650-599-1536.
