“One fatal crash involved a 47-year-old man struck and killed by another vehicle when he stood outside his disabled car”
The California Highway Patrol has released additional details of two fatal crashes that occurred over the weekend.
The first occurred on Saturday at 5:15 a.m. on the westbound 91 near Imperial Highway when 47-year-old Enrique Aniceto of Sun City was struck and killed by another vehicle when he stood outside his disabled car.
According to the CHP, Aniceto, driving a 2010 Honda Fit, stopped in the No. 1 lane and exited his vehicle possibly for a right rear flat tire.
A 2007 white Toyota Yaris slowed down and moved to the No. 2 lane as it approached the Honda. A 2008 gray Chevrolet Malibu then came upon the Honda and failed to stop, rear ending the Honda. The Honda struck Aniceto, who was standing outside, and the white Toyota in the No. 2 lane.
Aniceto sustained fatal injuries.
Several CHP officers responded to assist with the collision and traffic control, the CHP said. Caltrans responded for the closure of the westbound FasTrak lanes.
The second fatal crash occurred at 2:35 a.m. Sunday on the southbound 55 connector to the southbound I-5 when a motorcyclist was struck by three vehicles after veering off the road.
The motorcyclist was Charles Park, 40, from Irvine, according to the coroner’s office.
According to the CHP, Park was riding a 2004 Yamaha in the No. 1 lane of the connector road at approximately 80 mph. His motorcycle veered to the left and hit a yellow sand barrel. The motorcycle continued south and hit another sand barrel.
Park was thrown from his motorcycle and landed within the No. 1 lane of the connector road. The motorcycle came to rest on the right shoulder of the transition.
Park was then struck by three vehicles traveling on the transition road. He was pronounced dead at 2:47 a.m.
The crash shut down the transition road about 3 a.m. to 9 a.m.
