The pedestrian was knocked down by the right front end of the truck and run over by the right rear wheels, causing fatal injuries, according to the CHP.

The pedestrian, identified as Robin Kropp of Lake Forest, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Riverside County coroner’s office.

The driver of the big rig was identified as Fabian Sisneros, 44, of Selma, California.

No arrests were made, and the CHP was investing the collision.
