Driver Fatally Strikes Jogger and Dog in San Marino on Huntington Drive near Kenilworth Avenue
SAN MARINO, CA (July 5, 2019) – One of two teens reportedly street racing on Huntington Drive near Kenilworth Avenue fatally struck and killed a jogger and a dog Thursday.
According to police, two vehicles, described as a white Mercedes and a blue Toyota, were racing prior to the accident.
Telling from a security video, investigators say the driver of the Mercedes attempted to cut off the Toyota driver before he or she lost control and veered across the center median. There, the Mercedes struck and killed a 49-year-old man jogging with his canine.
Another jogger, described as a woman trailing behind the man, saw the incident and dashed to the scene.
According to Police Chief John Incontro, the woman was about a hundred feet when she heard the noise and rushed over.
Due to the impact, the jogger flew about 30 feet from the point of impact while the dog traveled 60 feet. Both died on impact, say reports.
