The victim of a three-vehicle crash on Monday afternoon was a 47-year-old Delta man.

Victor Duarte worked for Speedline, which sells point of sale software to pizza companies. He was an account manager.

Duarte was on his way home to Delta after work, his employer confirmed for CTV News.

The company learned about the crash on Tuesday morning.

Duarte was killed when a truck, driven by a man who was fleeing from police, who had set up enforcement at 240 Street and 0 Avenue, crashed into his vehicle at 240 Street and 16 Avenue. A third vehicle was also involved in the crash, but the driver was not seriously injured.

The Speedline owner called Duarte “a good guy” and said co-workers are in disbelief. He said Durate was married and had two children.
