A man died after he was struck by 3 cars. Only 1 stopped to help, Boise police say

A man was struck by multiple cars and killed late Wednesday night, according to a Boise Police Department press release, and only one of the drivers stopped at the scene.

Police responded to a collision on Fairview Avenue near Shamrock Avenue around 11:15 p.m. A driver traveling eastbound on Fairview struck the victim, identified as Abdulaziz Madallah Ayedh Alenezi, and his vehicle, which was stopped in the lane of travel with no lights on, police said. Alenezi was standing outside the vehicle.

The eastbound driver stopped at the scene, where the victim was then hit by two additional drivers who did not stop.

Alenezi was pronounced dead at the scene.

Boise police released a pair of descriptions Friday for the vehicles involved in the crash. One of the vehicles is described as a blue or purple early 2000’s Pontiac Grand Am or Grand Prix with front damage that is missing a front fog light. The other vehicle is described as a red Chevrolet Silverado truck.

No charges have been filed against the first driver, who police say is cooperating with investigators. Anyone with information about the other drivers who left the scene is urged to call Boise Police at 208-377-6790 or via Crime Stoppers at 208-343- COPS, 343COPS.com or the P3 app.

Officers are attempting to reconstruct the crash as the investigation continues.
