Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Jurgen Traub, the elderly pedestrian who was struck and killed by a vehicle this morning neat Marin County Civic Center.
The collision occurred on Civic Center Drive at Peter Behr Drive in San Rafael. The driver of a van owned by a plumbing company struck an elderly man. The victim was identified as Jurgen Traub, 79, of Nevada City. He was in Marin this week to visit his friends. The driver stopped at the scene and is cooperating with investigators. He works for Starving Plumbers, a company based in Larkspur. An employee of the company told media outlets that the driver was on his way to his second job of the morning and was ahead of schedule. The driver is “destroyed” over what happened.
San Rafael police are investigating the accident. Anyone with additional information is asked to call (415) 485-3000.
