ARDEN, CA - A 60-year-old man died Thursday night after being run over by a cab on Fulton Avenue in the Arden area, but California Highway Patrol and UC Davis medical personnel say the taxi was likely the second vehicle to hit him.
CHP spokesman Jim Frost said officers were called to Fulton Ave. just north of Hurley Way in response to a report of a man being hit by a cab.
Upon arrival, officers found the taxi driver at the scene, but the victim, Dale Phillip Jensen, had already been transported to UC Davis medical center, said Frost.
According to Frost, the cab driver was cooperative with CHP officers and explained he was making a u-turn at a low rate of speed, did not seen Jensen laying in the road, and ran him over. An ensuing investigation confirmed the cab driver's story, said Frost.
