Santa Ynez man killed while jogging identified

Officials have identified the 45-year-old man killed while jogging in Santa Ynez last week as Ryuta Yamaguchi of Santa Ynez.

The California Highway Patrol says Yamaguchi was killed Dec. 27 after being hit by a minivan on Refugio Road at Deer Trail Lane.

CHP says an 89-year-old woman from Solvang was stopped at the intersection and, when she began to cross the intersection, hit Yamaguchi, who was also entering the intersection.

He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Officials do not believe drugs or alcohol played a role in the accident.
