Seventy-eight-year-old Vito DiGiorgio was struck by three different vehicles and killed while trying to cross the Pacific Coast Highway in Dana Point on Saturday night.
DiGiorgio of San Juan Capistrano was with his wife, and was “not in a crosswalk as they attempted to cross PCH in the area just after 6 p.m.,” according to Carrie Braun of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
His wife, who was not identified, made it safely across the street, however, Mr. DiGiorgio was struck by three separate vehicles, Braun said. A white Range Rover, heading south, was the first car to collide with him, Braun said. “That impact threw him into a northbound lane, where a silver Dodge Ram and a black Toyota Solara both hit him,” she said.
