The man that was struck and killed in the vehicle accident name is Erik Johnson and he was 24--not 28. The family is deeply distraught and saddened by the tragic events. He leaves behind to mourn two young daughters ages one and three. Any donations to assist with the funeral arrangements could be sent to youcaring.com/flyingangel
