COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A pedestrian passed away one day after he was hit by a car near the Citadel Mall.

The crash was reported in the area of Delaware and Galley just north of the mall around 6:15 p.m. on Saturday. The driver involved remained on scene and is reportedly cooperating with detectives.

The pedestrian was rushed to the hospital, and passed away on Sunday. The pedestrian was identified as 49-year-old Phillip Bonilla of Colorado Springs.

According to police, Bonilla was trying to cross Galley mid-block and was not in a marked crosswalk when he was hit.

Galley was closed west of Academy for nearly four hours and reopened around 10 Saturday night.

Bonilla’s death marks the third traffic-related fatality in Colorado Springs for 2021.
