Police seek witnesses to Stony Point Road pedestrian crash

A man critically injured after he was hit by a car this weekend was identified Monday morning at Oscar Cordova, 55.

Cordova, a Santa Rosa transient, was highly intoxicated as he walked into traffic on Stony Point Road Saturday night, said Sgt. Rich Celli.

He was hit by a car, knocked up and over the hood and then left injured and untended in the roadway by the driver.

Police Monday still were hoping a witness would come forward to help with the investigation into Cordova's hit-and-run driver.

Cordova wasn't carrying any identification and officers struggled with learning his identity until a family member came forward and said the injured man could be a relative.

Photos were sent to Stanford Medical Center Monday, where Cordova is being treated, and medical personnel were able to help identify him, Celli said.

The man Monday remained in critical condition. He was initially taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital but then was transferred on Sunday to Stanford.

Officers were called to Stony Point Road at Highway 12 at about 10:30 p.m. Saturday by drivers who reported a man walking in the roadway.

Arriving officers found a man lying in a lane, having suffered possibly life-threatening injuries after being hit by a car.

Celli said a witness who saw the collision was focused on the man and couldn't provide a description of the car or driver.
