Mahin Ashki, 58, killed in pedestrian collision with commercial truck on Powell Street in Emeryville, California
The female pedestrian was crossing Powell Street in a crosswalk near Christie Avenue at 9:24 a.m. while the truck driver was making a right turn from Christie to Powell, police said.
Ashki’s plight to stay in the country after the threat of deportation for marriage fraud was covered by the national media back in 2001. Ashki is survived by two children and a husband, who have not been identified.
Her former attorney, Ron Russell, of Louisville, Kentucky said Ashki’s death was unfair and unexpected because “she was in a situation where she was able to continue to remain here.”
