Central Coast Man Struck, Killed By Vehicle

Posted on Friday, December 27, 2013 12:20pm

A Central Coast man who was out jogging is dead, following an accident in the Santa Ynez Valley.

The 45 year old man was running near the intersection of Refugio Road, and Deer Creek Lane just after 6:30 Friday morning.  The CHP says a mini-van stopped at the intersection, then entered it, striking the Santa Ynez man.  He was pronounced dead at  Santa Ynez Cottage Hospital about 20 minutes later.

The name of the victim hasn’t been released yet.  CHP officers  are still trying to determine what happened, but say alcohol doesn’t appear to be a factor in the accident.
