February 24, 2010 – A 43-year-old man was killed after he hopped out of a car during an argument with his girlfriend and stepped into the path of an oncoming vehicle in the rural community of Crest, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Cary Floyd Conner, of El Cajon, died at the scene of the accident at La Cresta Boulevard and Mountain View Road at 7:20 p.m. Tuesday, according to the CHP.
Conner was riding in a Toyota Corolla with his girlfriend, Donna Anselmi, as they left a convenience store parking lot, CHP Officer Brian Pennings said.
He said Conner and Anselmi were arguing as she pulled into the road to turn left. Conner reportedly opened his passenger door and got out, right in the path of a vehicle driven by Jan Burrell, 60, of El Cajon.
Burrell was unable to avoid striking Conner, who suffered major injuries, Pennings said.
