In the early morning hours of Thursday, December 22, 2016, Michael James Horton, a resident of Norco, was walking on Hamner Avenue, in the city of Norco, when he was fatally struck by a vehicle. The driver of the vehicle fled the scene without stopping to render aid to Mr. Horton and did not call 911. Unfortunately, Mr. Horton succumbed to his injuries. One year later, this fatal hit-and-run traffic collision remains unsolved.

The Jurupa Valley Station Traffic Team and the Norco Sheriff’ Office is hoping to solve this case and bring closure to the family of Mr. Horton. This can only be done if someone is willing to do the right thing and come forward with information that will solve this case. The Norco Sheriff’s Office is asking for someone to come forward with a credible tip, or to admit they were the driver of the vehicle that night.

Anyone with information about the traffic collision is being asked to contact Deputy Cuadra #3717 at 951-955-2600, or you may also submit a tip using the Crime Tips online form which can be located on the Riverside Sheriff’s Department web page at: http://www.riversidesheriff.org.
