Roberto Garcia Fatally Struck by Car on Highway 1 Near 41st Avenue

 
SANTA CRUZ, CA (January 3, 2019) – A 38-year-old Watsonville man was hit and killed by a motorist Monday while attempting to flee police officers on Highway 1 near 41st Avenue.
 
The California Highway Patrol got in touch with Roberto Garcia around 5:45 p.m. who was in a disabled car on the southbound lanes of Highway 1. News reports say that his vehicle was blocking the No. 2 lane and he displayed signs of intoxication.
 
Before officers were able to conduct a DUI investigation, Garcia reportedly took off running across the southbound lanes, hopping over the median, and into the northbound lanes where he was hit by a Subaru Crosstrek, driven by a 46-year-old San Jose woman.
 
Officers and emergency personnel arrived on scene to render aid to Garcia, but despite these efforts, he was pronounced dead around 6 p.m.
 
CHP believes alcohol and drugs did contribute to the crash. Although the San Jose woman was shaken up, she was neither harmed nor cited in the crash.
