The man who was killed on I-880 last Tuesday evening has been identified as Pavan Mishra, a 28-year-old from Hayward.

Mishra’s 1998 Honda got a flat tire while driving southbound near the I-238 interchange just before 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 2, according to the California Highway Patrol.

When Mishra stopped on the shoulder, his car was struck by a 2002 Lexus SUV being driven by Ulysses Wortham, 62, of San Francisco.

Wortham was also headed southbound when his car drifted onto the shoulder and hit the Honda, forcing the Honda back onto the freeway.

The SUV overturned and blocked the two right lanes, the CHP said.

Mishra was pronounced dead at the scene.

Wortham was arrested on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence.

All southbound lanes of the freeway were closed for about two hours while the CHP investigated the crime scene last Tuesday night.

San Leandro police arrested two teens for an armed carjacking at Walmart last month.

On Jan. 19 at just after 11 p.m., a 54-year-old man was sitting in his 1999 Toyota Corolla in the Walmart parking lot at 15555 Hesperian Boulevard, when he was approached by two suspects armed with what appeared to be a semi-automatic pistol, according to Lt. Robert McManus of the San Leandro police.

The suspects stole the man’s wallet and took his car.

They were last seen by witnesses fleeing south in the car on Hesperian Boulevard towards Hayward.

The next day, Hayward Police officers spotted the stolen car and arrested two teens matching the description of the carjackers.

The Hayward officers found a replica firearm in the vehicle, resembling a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol.

San Leandro police continued their investigation and have identified the 15 and 16 year old males arrested by the Hayward officers as the suspects responsible for the violent crime.

Both suspects are from Hayward and are currently being held at the Alameda County Juvenile Justice Center on Fairmont Drive on charges of robbery and carjacking.
