Victim in Spring Valley jaywalking accident ID’d

SPRING VALLEY (CNS) – Authorities Friday publicly identified the 61-year-old La Mesa man who was fatally struck by an SUV while jaywalking in Spring Valley last weekend.

John Michael Moline was attempting to cross the 8700 block of Broadway outside a marked crosswalk near Spring Street around 9 p.m. Sunday when he walked into the path of an eastbound 2006 Ford Explorer, according to the California Highway Patrol and the county Medical Examiner’s Office.

The SUV’s driver, a 46-year-old Lemon Grove man, could not avoid striking the Moline, authorities said.

Moline was taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital and later died, CHP Officer Kevin Pearlstein said. The SUV’s driver was not injured and was not cited in connection with the crash, he said.
