The coroner’s office on Sunday identified the man who was struck twice and killed on the Ventura (134) Freeway early Saturday morning after he’s had exited his vehicle following an earlier crash.

The driver was Ajene Pierre Mohr, 42, of North Hollywood, according to Ed Winter, assistant chief with the coroner’s office.

The initial crash occurred at 12:24 a.m. after a 2001 Honda CRV stopped for unknown reasons in a middle westbound lane just before Pacific Avenue and was rear-ended by a 2005 Toyota Solara, driven by Mohr,  traveling at an unknown speed, according to California Highway Patrol investigators.

After the crash, Mohr got out of his car and began walking toward the center divider wall.

While on foot in the westbound carpool lane, he was struck by a Lexus IS 250 that was traveling at about 75 mph when its driver merged into the carpool lane to avoid the disabled vehicles, according to the CHP.

The driver of the Lexus slowed down but was unable to stop, and the force of the impact propelled Mohr up over the center divider wall onto an eastbound carpool lane.

Morh “was still alive and moving,” according to officials, when he was struck a second time by a vehicle traveling eastbound at an unknown speed. Mohr was pronounced dead at 12:42 a.m.

The eastbound driver fled the scene and has not been located or identified, Posada said.

The crash remains under investigation and no arrests have been made.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call California Highway Patrol investigators at (626) 296-8100.
