Police identified the Oakland man as the victim of the collision which occurred late last month, on February 28.
The incident happened when Nirivana ‘Nob’ Allen was driving a Mercedes and then took the Hillcrest Avenue exit off Highway 4 in Antioch.
He then pulled to the shoulder due to mechanical issue and exited his car to get the gas can from the trunk. He was traveling with his two children, including a 6-year-old girl, and a nephew at the time.
