GREENWICH, Conn. — A Westchester man struck and killed by a tractor-trailer was pushing hit out-of-gas car on I-95 in Greenwich on Saturday when the accident occurred, according to Fox 61 Connecticut.

The tractor-trailer driver, John Hoffman of Gloucester, N.J., was blinded by sun glare on a curve in the road and drifted into the shoulder, hitting Coyt-Orozco, who was pushing and steering the car while standing on the driver's side door, the Fox 61 said.
Coyt-Orozco was taken to Weschester Medical Center in Valhalla, where he was pronounced dead.
