The Napa man killed while attempting to cross Highway 29 on foot Saturday night was identified Monday as Erik Keith Woodward, 25.

Woodward was pronounced dead at the scene at 9:12 p.m. after being struck by a SUV traveling at freeway speeds, Coroner's spokesperson Henry Wofford said.

The California Highway Patrol reported Sunday that Woodward was attempting to cross the four-lane highway south of First Street when he was struck by a northbound SUV whose driver could not avoid the pedestrian.

The motorist, a 51-year-old man from Concord, suffered moderate injuries as a result of the collision, the CHP said.

The Press Democrat in Santa Rosa identified the motorist as Fernando Morales.
