Ravikesh Kumar was driving the box truck for the postal service and FeEx from Sacramento to San Jose when he met with the accident at Danville, about 45 km from San Francisco, early on Monday morning.

“The young Sacramento man behind the wheel was being paid to be a Santa of sorts when a crash took his life, but loved ones say his generous spirit made Kumar very much like the jolliest elf all year round,” Fox40 TV said.
