Good Samaritan Struck and Killed While Attempting to Aid Driver Involved in Collision

LOMA LINDA – A good samaritan was killed attempting to assist a driver involved in a traffic collision on Monday. At around 1:30 a.m. Crystal Martinez, 22, of Loma Linda was driving a black Toyota Matrix westbound on the I-10 just east of Mountain View Avenue in Loma Linda. Martinez changed lanes, struck a 2002 Freightliner truck, rolled over and became disabled in lanes of traffic.

A good samaritan saw the collision and went to aid Martinez. As the good samaritan stopped a 2017 Hyundai Sonata was approaching the collision and veered to avoid the disabled Toyota striking the good samaritan. The driver of the Hyundai stopped his vehicle and called 911. Emergency medical personnel arrived and determined that the good samaritan died as a result of the injuries sustained.

The collision remains under investigation by the California Highway Patrol. The identity of the good samaritan will be released pending notification of next of kin. CHP officials believe that Martinez may have been driving under the influence at the time of the collision. Anyone with further information is encouraged to call Officer McAllister at (909) 383-4247.
