    Investigators said the man was walking outside the crosswalk when the accident happened, Friday, Aug. 29, 2014.

    A man who died last Friday when a car struck him after he fell backwards from a median at a busy intersection in Campbell was identified as 88-year-old Chung Lee, according to the Santa Clara County medical examiner's office.

    Campbell police had said earlier that he was 70.

    Lee had just finished having lunch with his wife at a Burger King restaurant at West Hamilton Avenue and Winchester Boulevard when he started heading south to reach the Chase Bank on the other side, according to Santa Clara County Fire Battalion Chief Brad Darbro.

    The man  walked about 30 feet outside of the crosswalk onto the median in the middle of Hamilton, stopped and for some reason fell backwards into the path of an oncoming vehicle heading west, Darbro said.

    The driver of the vehicle cooperated fully with police, there was no evidence of drug or alcohol use and no citation was issued, Berg said.
