Motorist Fatally Struck by Car White Trying to Inspect His Own Vehicle on 10 Freeway at Haugen-Lehmann Way

WHITEWATER, CA (February 2, 2019) – A motorist was killed after being struck by a car while trying to inspect damage to his own vehicle after a spinout Saturday evening just after 7:00 p.m.

The victim has been identified as James Kenrod, 28, of San Diego.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Kenrod was driving his 2014 Subaru Legacy westbound on 10 Freeway, about a mile West of Haugen-Lehmann Way in a rainstorm, when he lost control of the car and spun into a retaining wall.

The car came to a stop in the second lane of the freeway, which has four westbound lanes through the area. The victim, who was not injured, stepped out of the vehicle to survey the damage, CHP officials said.

While Kenrod was taking a look, a 2008 Honda CRV that was traveling westbound in the second lane plowed into the Subaru, which hit the victim, who was also struck by the Honda.

Kenrod suffered severe injuries and was taken to San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital in Banning, where he was pronounced dead an hour later.

The Honda driver was uninjured.

Initial reports indicated that the Honda driver, who was not arrested, may not have seen the Subaru in time to stop or make a lane change, likely because of reduced visibility, officials said.

Alcohol and drugs were not being ruled out as factors in the crash but the incident remains under investigation.
