Bayani Naguit


A Morro Bay man has died in the aftermath of being struck by a car in the San Luis Obispo Costco parking lot last week.

Shortly before 4 p.m. on April 22, a car hit Bayani Naguit, 65, as he was walking in the parking lot. Emergency personnel transported Naguit to a local hospital. He eventually succumbed to his injuries.

“My brother was going to a grocery market when he was hit by a car,” Victor Naguit wrote on a Gofundme page that is raising money for his family. “Unfortunately, he did not survive the accident. My brother is a family man who loves his family very much. He loves to go fishing, watching his grandkids and spending time with his siblings.”

Please help the family if you can.

My condolences. Just a couple of question- How fast was the vehicle going when Mr. Naguit got hit? It’s a parking lot, drivers should expect pedestrian shoppers at all times. I hope the auto insurance covers all expenses and compensation for the family. I’m sorry for your loss. God Bless.

How can this happen? What a Great Travesty! A huge loss to our community! My condolences and prayers for the family.

Costco is permitting a dangerous situation by allowing cars to park next to the snack bar in violation of a RED FIRE LANE delineation. These cars stop to pick up a pizza, etc and block the view of pedestrians and other vehicles. Is it not a violation to park in a fire lane? Where is the City and Costco???

How fast was that car driving in the Costco parking lot??!?

So sorry to hear of this. Our cars are laden with amenities and can do a lot of damage to person in a distracted second.
