Campbell Police Officers along with California Highway Patrol received a call that a body was lying on the shoulder of San Tomas Expressway Saturday.
The male was identified as a 23-year-old resident of San Jose, said Campbell Police Capt. Dave Carmichael.
Campbell Police were first on the scene Dec. 22 at 2:42 a.m. and pronounced the man deceased at the scene, he said.
"It was determined that he had been struck by an unknown vehicle that fled the scene," Carmichael said.
