From the Sacramento Bee:

A Bakersfield man who was killed Friday in Newcastle when a big rig drifted onto the shoulder of eastbound Interstate 80 and crashed into him and his parked tow truck has been identified as Miguel Angel Ramos, 42, the California Highway Patrol reported Monday.

CHP Officer Kelly Baraga said Ramos had stopped on the shoulder shortly before 3 p.m. because his truck, which was not towing a vehicle, developed engine trouble.

Ramos was inspecting the engine when the big rig, carrying a load of prunes, struck him, Baraga said.
