Cary, N.C. — A Moore County man standing next to his vehicle off U.S. Highway 1 in Cary early Wednesday was killed when another vehicle hydroplaned and struck him, authorities said.
The crash happened at 5:20 a.m. near Ten-Ten Road, according to Cary police.
Eduardo Rivas, 33, of the first block of Red Coat Drive in Cameron, died at the scene. Rivas' wife and children were in the car at the time of the wreck, but they were uninjured.
The driver in another car was taken to WakeMed as a precaution, authorities said.
Investigators said Rivas had stopped after he hydroplaned off the right side of the road. He apparently got out to inspect his vehicle when the second driver also hydroplaned, ran off the road and hit him.
No charges were filed.
