GLENDALE, Ariz. – Glendale police are asking for help locating the family of a man who was killed while crossing a street last week.

Police have identified the pedestrian as David Digildo, a white male in his 50s. He is believed to be homeless.

Police said Digildo was not in a crosswalk when he was struck by a Jeep near Peoria and 43rd avenues on Nov. 14.

He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

The Jeep was driven by a Peoria man in his 30s. His teenage daughter was also in the vehicle.

Police said speed was not a factor in the collision and the driver was not impaired.

Glendale Police Vehicular Crimes detectives have been working to notify Digildo's family of his death, but they have been unable to locate any relatives in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

The Glendale Police Department is asking anyone who is related to Digildo, or anyone who knows of a relative who can be contacted, to call 623-930-3000.
