Details:

On Saturday, April 20, 2019, at 11:07 p.m., officers assigned to the Jurupa Valley Police Department responded to the area of Van Buren Blvd. just north of Limonite Avenue, reference a male laying in the roadway with obvious signs of trauma. Officers arrived on scene and observed injuries to the deceased consistent with being struck by a vehicle. The male was pronounced deceased by deputies on scene at 11:08 p.m.  Members of the Jurupa Valley Traffic Team responded to the scene to assume the investigation.

The preliminary investigation determined the deceased was riding his bicycle northbound Van Buren Blvd. just north of the Limonite on ramp, in the far east portion of the roadway, when a vehicle struck him and fled the scene.

On Sunday, April 21, 2019, at 0833 hours, officers responded to the 9000 block of 56th Street, in Jurupa Valley, regarding follow-up call related to the fatal hit and run traffic collision. Officers obtained information that identified Andrew Walters as the driver of the vehicle that struck the deceased male.

Walters was arrested and booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center for violation of  20001 (a) VC (Felony Hit and Run).

Alcohol and/or drug impairment does not appear to be a factor in this collision at this time.

The Jurupa Valley Police Department’s Traffic Collision Reconstruction Team is currently conducting this investigation. This investigation is ongoing, and we are asking anyone with additional information to contact Deputy Ditfurth at the Jurupa Valley Station at 951-955-2600.
