A 40-year-old Elk Grove man was struck by a vehicle and killed along Interstate 80 late Saturday night in Davis.

California Highway Patrol officials identified the deceased as Larry Vidaurry.

CHP said the incident occurred shortly after 11:30 p.m. on the right shoulder of eastbound I-80, where it merges with the Highway 113 interchange.

Officials said a Toyota Tundra pickup truck towing a boat trailer pulled off the road because of a flat tire on the trailer. Two of the three passengers in the pickup, one of them Vidaurry, ran across the Highway 113 transition road and stood on the south side of the steel guardrail “for safety” as the truck’s driver unhooked the trailer and went to find an inflated tire.

When the driver returned, the two males who had been standing behind the guardrail started to run back across the two-lane transition road, according to reports. One made it safely, but Vidaurry was struck by a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu driven by a 27-year-old Sacramento man.

Investigators do not believe that alcohol was a factor in the incident, and no arrest was made at the scene.
