On Friday, March 4, 2022, about 11:09 PM, deputies assigned to the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to the area of First Street east of Parkridge Avenue, Norco, regarding a major-injury traffic collision. When deputies arrived, they found the collision involved a single vehicle and a pedestrian. The pedestrian was found unresponsive and ultimately succumbed to injuries sustained during the collision at the scene. The driver of the vehicle was uninjured during the traffic collision, remained on-scene and cooperated with the investigation.
The Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station Traffic Collision Reconstruction Team responded to the scene and assumed the investigation. The cause of the collision is still under investigation and alcohol and/or drugs does not appear to be a factor. The identity of the pedestrian will not be released at this time, pending notification to the next of kin.
The collision investigation required the temporary closure of First Street, between Parkridge Avenue and Mountain Avenue in order to process the scene and collect evidence.
