LOWER VALLEY — A man is dead after police say he ran in front of a truck in The Lower Valley.
The accident happened just after 10 p.m. Friday night near the intersection of Carolina and Yarbrough.
Witnesses say the victim was seen asking for money near a gas station moments before he was killed.
"When I heard the hit, I turned around and I saw him flying and hit the ground. I just came running. My first reaction was come and check him out and try to help,” said Lourdes Perez.
El Paso police say the victim, who is only being described as a Hispanic male in his 20's was hit and killed by a white Ford truck after he ran into the road.
Police don't suspect speed or alcohol to be a factor in the deadly crash.
