A 55-year-old San Jose man is now facing murder and child endangerment charges after a bizarre crash in San Jose last week.
Investigators say Rickey Lartigue was driving drunk, with two small children, when he hit and killed a man walking behind the car.
They say Lartigue stopped, reversed and ran the victim over on Leeward Drive.
The victim, 43-year-old Willy Umali, was pronounced dead the next day.
Police say they don’t believe that Lartigue targeted Umali in this case.
Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office decided to file a murder charge based on Lartigue's past convictions, according to police.
Umali is now classified by San Jose police as the city’s 32nd homicide victim of 2013.
