The statewide operation will begin on Aug. 7 through Aug. 13.

Richard Arnold, commander of the MSP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division. “This coordinated operation seeks to increase awareness of dangerous driving behaviors through high visibility enforcement on the I-75 freeway.”

Police say troopers will focus on violations by commercial vehicles “that are most likely to contribute to a crash,” such as distracted driving, following too close, improper passing, speeding improper lane use, as well as slow down and move over violations.

Officials say vehicles of all types will be pulled over for the same dangerous driving behaviors.

The initiative is part of the statewide Drive Toward Zero Deaths traffic safety campaign, which is based on the national strategy on highway safety that seeks to reduce the number of traffic deaths nationwide.

Crime and Public Safety | San Jose: Authorities identify victims in July homicides, hit and run

SAN JOSE — The coroner’s office has officially identified four homicide victims and one fatal hit-and-run victim who died in July in San Jose.

Two of the cases have since yielded arrests, though the victims’ names were not immediately released at the time, while the Santa Clara County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office formally identified them and notified their next of kin.

A woman who was stabbed to death July 12 in downtown San Jose near Plaza de Cesar Chavez Park on South Market Street has been identified as 32-year-old Angelica Stephanie Vavasseur. Three days later, police arrested 40-year-old San Jose resident Saunray Winchester in the same area in connection with the deadly attack.

The coroner’s office confirmed that the victim of a fatal July 15 shooting at The Plant shopping center at Curtner Avenue and Monterey Road was 58-year-old Hector Joe Granados. Later that day, 20-year-old San Jose resident Manuel Gutierrez was arrested on suspicion of shooting Granados.

An obituary for Granados described him as being survived by three children, two grandchildren and several siblings.

On July 17, a man was reportedly beaten to death near Story and South King roads during a brawl that started in restaurant and spilled out into the parking lot. The coroner’s office confirmed that 20-year-old San Jose resident Eduardo Yahir Perez Garcia died from his injuries after he was found by responding police officers on Story Road. No arrests have been made in the death.

A July 31 shooting on Umbarger Road resulted in the death of Bryan Alberto Lopez Fajardo, a 25-year-old Sacramento resident, according to the coroner’s office. Police reported that another man was injured in the shooting but was expected to survive. No arrests have been made.

Garcia Navas’ death marked the city’s 23rd pedestrian death of the year, matching the total reached in all of 2021. The city has recorded 25 homicides in 2022, compared to 23 at the same point last year.
