A 62-year-old man in a wheelchair who died after being struck by a couple of vehicles in Fountain Valley was publicly identified Sunday.

Greggory Tilden was homeless, according to the Orange County coroner’s office.

The crash occurred about 2:35 a.m. Saturday at the intersection of Euclid Street and Warner Avenue, according to Lt. Kham Vang of the Fountain Valley Police Department.

The drivers of both vehicles stayed at the scene and cooperated with police, Vang said.

A blue 2021 Chrysler Pacifica was northbound on Euclid when it struck the wheelchair, which was westbound on Warner across Euclid, police said. The wheelchair was then struck by a white 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee going north on Euclid.

Tilden was pronounced dead at the scene.

The department’s traffic bureau urged anyone with information regarding the fatality to call them at 714-593-4481.
