Robert Perez Involved in Pedestrian Collision on Elkhorn Avenue near Highway 43

 
FRESNO, CA (June 22, 2018)– A man was found dead after being struck by a big rig on Elkhorn Avenue on Friday night.
 
The man, who was not yet identified, was found motionless in the eastbound lane of Elkhorn Avenue, just west of Highway 43 at around 11:30 PM. The driver, identified as Robert Perez of Kerman, was driving his 2013 Volvo tractor-trailer rig east on Elkhorn. Perez attempted to brake but still hit the victim, and he was not able to see the man until it was too late.
 
Officers arrived and found the big rig facing west in the westbound lane of Elkhorn, just east of the man’s body. It was not immediately established why the man was lying in the road or if he was alive when he was struck by the big rig. Investigators found a vehicle, presumed to be the victim’s, parked facing north between the rows of a peach grove north of the accident. It was not clear why the man was lying in the road.
 
There are no streetlights in the area according to CHP.
 
It was determined that Perez was not under the influence of alcohol, but the CHP did not immediately confirm if the deceased victim was. The identity of the deceased man was not immediately released.
