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.

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!

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.

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.
