Rancho Cucamonga, CA (January 20, 2019) – Police responded to a pedestrian accident that took place along the 210 Freeway on Friday evening, which is allegedly a hit-and-run accident.
The collision took place around 7:30 p.m. just east of the Archibald Avenue exit. At the time, the pedestrian, whose name has not yet been released, was standing outside a car that had been stopped along the right shoulder of the freeway. A passing vehicle went by and struck the pedestrian.
When fire department officials and paramedics arrived at the scene, they found the pedestrian’s body lying on the ground outside the driver’s side door. The victim was tragically pronounced dead at the scene. At this time, the family is being notified before the name is released.
The driver who struck the pedestrian did not stay at the scene of the accident and instead fled the area. The suspect vehicle was located abandoned about a mile away but the driver was not in it.
The investigation into the matter continues at this time.
We were deeply saddened to learn that a pedestrian lost their life in this horrific accident. We wish to extend our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of the pedestrian as they go through the difficult grieving process.
Pedestrian Accidents in California
Hit-and-run pedestrians happen far too often on California roads, with some of the leading reasons being negligent driving from distracted driving and drunk driving. When somebody is not completely focused on the roadways, there is a higher chance that a pedestrian accident will result. After somebody strikes a pedestrian, their first course of action is to contact authorities but many people every year flee the scene, putting lives at risk and breaking the law.
