SAN DIEGO - A trip to a neighborhood store ended in tragedy for a San Diego man last night. 49-year-old Jose Alaniz was walking on the side of the road when a vehicle hit him from behind.
Alaniz leaves behind two teenage daughters and a 22-year-old stepson.
"He was a wonderful son. I love him to death. I'm going to miss him very much," says his mother Lillian Alaniz.
His family believes his own poor vision likely kept him from ever seeing the car that hit him.
Police are handling his death as an accident.
