A 38-year-old man pushing his belongings across a Fullerton street died after he was hit by three vehicles within minutes early Monday, June 27, California police said.

None of the drivers stopped to assist the man after the 1:30 a.m. incident, a Fullerton Police Department news release said.

The man was pushing a cart with his belongings across Harbor Boulevard against a red light in a crosswalk, police said.

A white Dodge Charger struck the man, knocking him down, police said. Seconds later, a black Jeep Wrangler hit the man lying in the street, followed minutes later by a white Honda Civic.

All three drivers continued southbound on Harbor Boulevard, police said.

Officers responding to reports of the accident found the man, surrounded by his scattered belongings, in the street, police said. He died a short time later at a hospital.

The man was later identified as Kenneth Edward Wassennar II, KTLA reported. A friend told the station he was a good man with many friends. The incident was captured on surveillance video, the station said.

Police ask that anyone with information or video call 714-738-6812 or email
