A Westchester man was identified as the pedestrian who was struck and killed by a tractor-trailer Saturday on southbound I-95 in Greenwich, Conn.

Carlos Coyt-Orozco of Port Chester and his passenger, David Espinoza, were pushing Coyt-Orozco's car along the right shoulder after it ran out of gas, according to a report by Fox 61 Connecticu t, citing Connecticut State Police.

John Hoffman of Gloucester, NJ, the driver of the tractor-trailer, was blinded by sun glare after hitting a curvature in the road, and drifted into the shoulder, hitting Coyt-Orozco, who was pushing and steering the car while standing on the driver's side door, the report said.

Coyt-Orozco was rushed to Weschester Medical Center in Valhalla, where he was pronounced dead. His age has not yet been released.

The right and center lanes on I-95 south were closed between Exits 2 and 3 as a result of the 4:30 p.m. accident.

The accident remains under investigation.
