As with any unsolved crime, law enforcement never closes the case and continues to seek answers. Today marks the five year anniversary of a tragic fatal traffic collision which occurred in the city of Eastvale.

Officers learned a black, unknown make sedan, struck a bicyclist after failing to stop for a red light. The sedan fled the scene on Limonite Avenue and was never located.

Update 05-29-2014:

On Thursday, May 29, 2014, the Eastvale Police Department’s Traffic Division with the assistance of the Citizen Volunteers reached out to the public, by handing out flyers. The flyers were handed out at the intersection of Limonite Ave. and Hamner Ave., to passing motorists. The flyers provided a brief summary of a fatal hit and run traffic collision, in the hopes of identifying possible witnesses. At the conclusion of the public outreach, five citizens came forward and provided information to Traffic Investigators about the case. The Eastvale Police Department is continuing its investigation into the incident and still encourages anyone with information to come forward.

Details:

On Friday, April 25, 2014 at 12:12 a.m., Eastvale Police Officers responded to a reported injury traffic collision at the intersection of Limonite Ave. and Hamner Ave., in the City of Eastvale.  During the preliminary investigation it was revealed that an unknown make or model black sedan, traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of Limonite Ave., failed to stop for a red traffic signal light.  As a result, the black sedan collided into a bicyclist, who was traveling southbound on Hamner Ave.

After the collision, the black sedan continued westbound on Limonite Ave. in the eastbound lanes of traffic and was last seen turning southbound on Scholar Way.  Although officers arrived within minutes of receiving the call, neither the black sedan, nor the driver of the sedan, was located. 

Witnesses on scene described the suspect vehicle as a black, four door sedan. The suspect vehicle fled the scene of the traffic collision westbound on Limonite Ave. and made a left turn (southbound) onto Scholar Way. 

As a result of the collision, the bicyclist ultimately succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased at a regional hospital.  

The Eastvale Police Department is seeking help from the public in identifying the suspect and suspect vehicle of this traffic collision.   In particular, the Eastvale Police Department is seeking the help of a good Samaritan, who was driving a tan Chevrolet Suburban, that may have seen the suspect vehicle and driver as is it fled the scene of the traffic collision.

Anyone with information on this case is encouraged to call Deputy Cuadra at the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station at (951) 955-2662.
