On Thursday, April 23, 2020, about 6:52 AM, deputies from the Jurupa Valley Station responded to a report of a traffic collision involving two vehicles and a pedestrian, on Limonite Avenue east of Camino Real, Jurupa Valley.

Upon arrival, deputies located a male adult with major injuries laying on the eastbound number two lane of Limonite Avenue. The male was pronounced deceased at the scene. The male victim was part of a landscaping crew doing work in the area and witnesses stated he was loading equipment on the bed of a parked work truck prior to being struck.
