Man killed trying to help I-280 crash victims ID’d as Redwood City resident
July 23, 2013, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

A man who was killed while attempting to help crash victims on Interstate 280 early Sunday morning has been identified by the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office as 32-year-old Redwood City resident Kirk Peterson.

The crash was reported north of Woodside Road at about 2:40 a.m.

A preliminary investigation indicated that the 25-year-old driver of a black Honda, Vallejo resident Charles Miranda, allowed his car to clip the rear of a Toyota SUV, causing the Toyota to go out of control and strike the center divider, California Highway Patrol Officer Art Montiel said.

Peterson saw the crash and pulled over to the road’s right shoulder in his Jeep, then attempted to run across southbound lanes to assist the victims. He was struck and killed by an oncoming Infiniti SUV, Montiel said.

Two people in the SUV suffered minor injuries.

Miranda has been charged with driving under the influence causing bodily injury and was in court Monday afternoon, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office.

Anyone who might have witnessed the incident should call the CHP at 369-6261.
