    Police have released the name of the DUI suspect who allegedly struck and killed a pedestrian Friday morning in Fremont.

    According to police, 57-year-old Robert Greer of Fremont was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of prescription medication and gross vehicular manslaughter.

    Just before 10 a.m. Friday, Greer was driving a 2013 Nissan Rogue compact SUV south on Argonaut Way near Mowry Avenue when he lost control of the vehicle and struck a pedestrian, a parked utility trailer and a fire hydrant, police said.

    Officers responded to the scene and found Greer unconscious in the driver's seat. He was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, police said. He also allegedly displayed signs of drug impairment, police said.

    The 44-year-old male pedestrian from Huntington Beach was pronounced dead at the scene. His name has not yet been released.

    Investigators believe that at the time of the crash, the pedestrian was trying to move a piano from the trailer to a residence on Argonaut Way, police said.

    Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Fremont police at (510) 790-6760.
