Man, 69, dies in Moreno Valley after being struck by tow truck


Recommended Posts

A 69-year-old Moreno Valley man died Monday morning, Oct. 11, after he was struck by a tow truck while crossing Box Springs Road, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said.


At about 7:22 a.m., Primitivo Martinez was crossing Box Springs, east of Clark Street, when a tow truck was turning left onto eastbound Box Springs and struck Martinez, the Sheriff’s Department said.


Paramedics transported Martinez to a hospital, where he died, the Sheriff’s Department said.


Intoxication did not appear to factor into the crash, authorities said. The tow truck driver’s vision was “reported to have been obstructed by sunlight,” the Sheriff’s Department said.


The crash happened at an intersection without marked crosswalks, authorities said.
