The Coroner's Office Saturday identified a 49-year-old woman who was killed when she was struck by a tractor-trailer while attempting to a cross an intersection in Murrieta.

Kimberly Renteria was crossing Murrieta Hot Springs Drive, east of Madison Avenue at 9 a.m. Friday when the driver of the tractor-trailer began a turn from northbound Madison, going east on Murrieta Hot Springs and hit her, said Murrieta police Lt. John Flavin.

Renteria, who was in a marked crosswalk, was pronounced dead at the scene. The big rig driver was not arrested, Flavin said, but added that the investigation was ongoing.

I saw the accident and what I saw has really messed me up. I didn't know the victim yet I lost it seeing that happen to another human. I just can't fathom how it happened! All so quickly.

As a trucker I can tell you that making a right turn is very dangerous. There are blind spot, the driver probably looked in his mirror and did not see her, and as he started his right turn, he was looking to his left to make sure no one was coming from the west before looking back to the right. I was not there, but by what I've heard he ran over her with his trailer, which would indicate that his cab was in the crosswalk or just passed the crosswalk and he just did not see her. I know that pedestrians have the right away, but some advice don't assume that the truck driver can see you, we are siting up high in our cab and can't see very thing that's in our blind spots. And that is why terrible accidents like this happen.I offer my condolences to her family.

B-Cat if Alex was a real man of courage, why doesn't he have the courage to show his entire face in his picture. Alex make himself sound like an idiotic ignorant fool with no common sense.

I watched a woman walking down the sidewalk on Margarita this afternoon while engrossed in her phone. She walked right into a street pole. I wonder if this poor lady was similarly distracted and did not notice the truck.
Steve Newman February 25, 2014 at 11:49 AM
ChrisG- that was my thought also.
Jeff Kleiner February 25, 2014 at 11:53 AM
Newman got schooled by me and Belle ripped his manhood off........all conservatives are cowardly woman haters
Steve Newman February 25, 2014 at 12:10 PM
Jeff- is it true that you beat up a 17 year old boy who asked you how your jail time went? School that. And you never worked for disney-even as the toad-bonus- ha- your family knows better. Boy if I had a family that hated me- that would hurt.
Jeff Kleiner February 25, 2014 at 12:40 PM
i BEAT UP A 17 YEAR OLD BOY????? What??? Yews, I am just a disabled beater of young guys.....you believe nonsense. My family has seen me once in the last twenty years.....they don't even know me. I have a family here, but again you attck me and my family...you are a coward. BTW.....the case is still under review, I just called the DA,.....ROFLMAO. But their may be another warrant out for the defendant from what I just heard.
Aaron Powers February 25, 2014 at 12:57 PM
I seriously doubt Jeff Kleiner beat up a 17 year old boy. I mean, he may have tried to, but no way could Kleiner kick a 17-year old's ass. No way.
ChrisG February 25, 2014 at 01:03 PM
It speaks volumes that a persons family has not seen them in twenty years. How sad.
Jeff Kleiner February 25, 2014 at 01:17 PM
You're right Aaron. In my condition I would have trouble against an infant. However, that does very little to prove someone's manhood.....except to small children on a school yard. And from your picture Aaron you qualify.That's what it's all about for conservatives.....how tough they are.....cowards who attack women, proof, their politicians protect the rapists and spousal abusers. Case in point the military. They have to see who has the biggest gun. What that shows you are scared, fearful and can't handle a stressful situation unless you can out gun someone.....conservative cowards.
Jeff Kleiner February 25, 2014 at 01:19 PM
The distance was far, I had a health condition and my Mother does not fly.....equals I talked with her daily........but ChrisG thinks he has the right to judge.......grow up.
Jeff Kleiner February 25, 2014 at 01:22 PM
Chris Garcia....a marine....see I told you they are watching and protecting.
ChrisG February 25, 2014 at 01:39 PM
@jeff, you tout yourself as a man of honor and courage yet you won't engage in honest discussion. Instead, you name call and vilify those with differing opinions. That is neither honorable nor courageous! You bet I judge people like you.
Steve Newman February 25, 2014 at 02:29 PM
ChrisG- aw poor Jeff is so sick he can't travel too far- but he supposedly went to the civil War battle sites a few years ago. And travels to Escondido- for beach time- a Toad on a beach- sounds like a British food. Poor Jeff- let's all feel sorry for him. The case is still under review- you know they think you are a crackpot- typical old man with nothing to do but call wolf. They have crime to stop- so why don't you stop bothering them with your psycho nonsense. You have a dog- let it be your friend- nobody else will- except Belle- and that is only on-line.
Steve Newman February 25, 2014 at 03:22 PM
Jeff- point of clarification- you say disney gave you a 20% down for the house in Escondido- But it was a rental wasn't it?
Jeff Kleiner February 25, 2014 at 03:27 PM
It was NOT rental Stevo...stop listening to Roy, he is a liar....we bought it under our trust. Chris Garcia...marines are suppose to be honorable, and with your posts today you show how dishonorable you are. Makes you wonder whats going on in our local military,
Jeff Kleiner February 25, 2014 at 03:29 PM
Wait Stevo.....you claimed it was dropped.......now your saying its open...proven flip flopping liar....like all conservatives.
Jeff Kleiner February 25, 2014 at 03:30 PM
it was the Oceanside home, moron, I lived near the Metrolink not in Riverside county.
Jeff Kleiner February 25, 2014 at 03:30 PM
How old are you Steve?????? 56??? 70????
Alek J Hidell February 25, 2014 at 03:44 PM
Can't you just shut your frantic, spittle-lipped mouth you scab -headed endomorph? Nobody likes you here.
Steve Newman February 25, 2014 at 04:03 PM
Kleiner- no I did not say the case was still under review as a fact- that was sarcasm you dolt. I did not say you lived in Riverside County at the time you were in escondido- are the meds wearing off.? And if you bought it through a trust- why the need for the 20% down from disney. You must have been quite the catch for them to put out that kind of relocation. And my age has nothing to do with you.
Steve Newman February 25, 2014 at 04:05 PM
Alek- while I really don't give a rat's ass if anybody likes me here- you of all people should know that you are both despised and hated. Quite an accomplishment for a diaper head. And again, you responded. Can't you remember anything.
Alek J Hidell February 25, 2014 at 04:20 PM
was talking to Kleinsfeld, you paranoid schizophrenic..
Jeff Kleiner February 25, 2014 at 04:36 PM
This is what you said you dimwitted liar..... Kleiner- no I did not say the case was still under review as a fact- that was sarcasm you dolt. ________________________________________________ Steve Newman February 24, 2014 at 04:47 PM Convict Kleienr- wow are you one to talk about right or wrong- how is that criminal case going with Roy- oh that's right- no charges pressed- the DA did not have time to follow your childish gibberish. Now that is funny- Jeff does not get his way- kind of like at home- do you hit Cindy when she tells you no? No charges pressed.......you are a juvinile scumbag liar --LIKE ALL CONSERVATIVES.
Steve Newman February 25, 2014 at 06:09 PM
Alek- oh sure you were- now fess up Adolf-

Randolf Aragon March 23, 2014 at 05:02 PM
The problem with big truck "so-called accidents" is that they make right turns without stopping on RED first (free rights on Red). I was nearly nailed while making a U Turn ON GREEN on Madison and this big truck made a "so-called Free Right on Red" on Madison without stopping on Red first and nearly hit me. The so-called "accident" with fatality a couple of weeks ago on Madison and Murrieta Hot Springs was probably a result of that truck making a so-called "Free Right Turn on Red" without first stopping at the RED LIGHT FACING THEM!
all-c-ing-eye March 23, 2014 at 05:33 PM
Randolph Aragon: Your right a lot of them dont come to a complete halt, as stopping a big rig or truck, them moving out again is work. Im not defending them but a little room is something you got to give them under the circumstances. If you go into most cities across America its all the same not just on the corner you mention, its everywhere and one of those things you got to live with [if you want to live]. You cant have a policeman on every corner on every st. so if you value your life [im sure you do] extra caution must be taken by pedestrians. Listening to tunes on your i pod and being in another world with your ears covered up is irresponsible in todays world. I have been in Europe and in some countries they drive on the sidewalks [no kidding] and people take it in stride as they are aware of it. Be careful, stay alive. Thank You.
Joe Rubalcava March 23, 2014 at 10:27 PM
Randol Aragon I'm sure you have never seen a car do what your assuming the truck driver did . We're you at that accident ? And I bet you have never heard of a calif. Stop and I bet you are such a perfect driver and have never make any driving in fraction. And I bet you have never seen any cars making left turns and when the light turns red they just keep on Turing on the red light. And I bet you have never gone faster than the speed limit. It's not illegal to make a right turn on a redlight, unless posted even if a car makes a u turn. How do you let a car making a right turn even on a red light that you are going to make a u turn, you can't can you.
