Pedestrian Dies 5 Days After He Was Hit By a Car
A Chico man has died, five days after he was hit by a car.
A family member said Tobias "Toby" Vigil, 55, died Tuesday night at Enloe Hospital in Chico.
Vigil was hit by a car last Thursday afternoon on Park Avenue at 15th Street in South Chico. Family members said he suffered a broken leg, massive head trauma and had been in a coma since the accident.
Witnesses told police Vigil appeared to have an argument with the driver William Llamas, 45 of Paradise. Police said Llamas was in his vehicle stopped at a crosswalk waiting for Vigil to cross the street.
After the accident police issued a news release asking witnesses to the accident to come forward.
A viewing will be held for Vigil Thursday from 7-9 p.m. at Newton Bracewell Funeral Home. Vigil's funeral will be held Friday at 1 pm.
