The man, who had been driving a 2004 Volkswagen Jetta, was changing the right rear tire of his car, which was parked on the right shoulder of the freeway. For an unknown reason, he stood up and ran around the back of the vehicle, stepping into traffic, where he was hit by a tractor-trailer truck driven by Eliodoro M. Hernandez, 44, of Lakewood.

It was apparent right away that injuries suffered by the man were fatal.

Hernandez immediately pulled to the right shoulder and called 911 to report the accident.

According to the California Highway Patrol, alcohol is not a factor in the incident.
