The coroner's office on Thursday identified 28-year-old Bandar Alodahi as the man who was killed after being struck by a car on Highway 99 near 16th Street on June 7.

Alodahi was an exchange student student from Saudi Arabia at California State University, Fresno.

Merced police responded to the scene, and investigators said it appears Alodahi, who was on foot, may have intentionally jumped in front of the car.

The driver of the car wasn't injured.
