Man in wheelchair killed by hit-and-run driver in Pico Rivera identified

PICO RIVERA — Coroner’s officials Saturday identified a 63-year-old man in a wheelchair who was fatally struck by a hit-and-run driver early Friday.
Marcos Dominguez, who was listed as a transient, died at the scene following the 3:50 a.m. crash on Whittier Boulevard, at a railroad overcrossing just west of Paramount Boulevard, Los Angeles County Department of Coroner Lt. Larry Dietz said.
Dominguez was struck by a westbound vehicle described only as a gray vehicle, possibly a Mistubishi, Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials said. No suspect had been located Saturday.
The place where Dominguez was struck is lined by high curbs and has no crosswalk, officials said.
It was not certain whether he was trying to cross the street, or lost control of his wheelchair while traveling down the sidewalk beside the road, which is at a steep incline.
Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call the sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station at 562-949-2421.
