41 Year-Old Casey Rivara of California died after he was struck by a car on Thursday night while helping Ducks cross a busy road.
The crash happened at Stanford Ranch Road and Park Drive in the city of Rocklin just after 8 p.m.. The driver, a 17-year-old girl, stayed at the scene and was cooperating, police said.
According to www.kcra.com 12 year-old William Wimsatt witnessed the man stepping out of his car to help the ducks escape on going traffic.
Williams said, “Everyone was clapping when he got out of the car to help the ducks”.
People have left floral tributes and rubber ducks at the site of the collision.
An online fundraiser set up by relatives says Mr Rivara was driving his children home after their swim practice when they noticed a “mama duck and ducklings struggling to cross a busy intersection”.
“Casey was the kindest, most amazing husband and father,” the fundraiser reads. “Even his last act in this world was a sign of his compassion.”
No arrests have been made.
