CALEXICO — A 44-year-old man who police described as a transient was killed Sunday when he was struck by a car while trying to cross a street.
Calexico police Lt. Jim Neujahr identified the man as Jerman Antonio Cabrera. The accident occurred shortly before 6 p.m. in the 500 block of Cesar Chavez Boulevard.
According to witness reports, Cabrera was crossing west to east on Cesar Chavez when he apparently decided to turn back west.
As he did he walked into the path of a car driven by a 17-year-old male from Mexicali, whose identity was not released because he is a juvenile arrested for driving without a license.
