Kurt Scheel has been identified by authorities as the victim in a pedestrian collision that occurred on February 27 in Palm Desert.  Mr. Scheel, a 52-year-old Rancho Mirage, resident, was reportedly in a crosswalk at the intersection of Dinah Shore Drive and Miriam Way but possibly crossing against a red light prior to 6:00 p.m. when he was hit by a Chevrolet Suburban. First responders arrived and attempted to help the victim but he sadly died at the scene. Reports indicate that the 34-year-old driver of the Suburban remained at the scene and cooperated. The case remains under investigation.

We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the deceased during this difficult time.
