Steve McKinney, 37, a daredevil who skied at more than 100 m.p.h. and once flew a hang glider off Mount Everest, was killed when the stranded car in which he was sleeping was struck by another vehicle near Sacramento.

Investigators said that McKinney's car apparently suffered mechanical trouble on Interstate 5 early Saturday and McKinney had climbed onto the back seat to sleep before seeking help.

One of his sisters is Tamara McKinney, a former Olympic gold medalist for the United States.
