According to the California Highway Patrol, the collision happened just east of Waterman Road around 10:30 PM. Based on a report, Alvarez was at the intersection prior to the crash.
At the same time, a 29-year-old Sacramento man was heading east on Gerber in a white 2019 Prius. As the car went through the Waterman intersection with a green light, Alvarez ran directly in front of the Prius.
