Details:

On February 13, 2021, about 11:57 PM, deputies from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, Moreno Valley Station, responded to the report of a hit and run traffic collision involving a pedestrian, near the intersection of Perris Boulevard and Fir Avenue, in the city of Moreno Valley. Deputies arrived on-scene to find that a male pedestrian had suffered life-threatening injuries and was declared deceased at the scene. Deputies determined the vehicle involved in the collision with the pedestrian had fled the area without rendering aid or summoning assistance.

The Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station Traffic Collision Reconstruction Team responded to the location and assumed the investigation. Information obtained during the preliminary investigation revealed the pedestrian was crossing Perris Boulevard, south of the intersection, when he was struck by an older, white, two-door Pontiac Grand Am traveling northbound on Perris Boulevard at a high rate of speed. The Pontiac slowed and pulled to the side of the roadway with a purple Scion XB following the collision, after which both the Pontiac and Scion fled the area eastbound on Fir Avenue.

It is unknown at this time if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the collision. The investigation will remain on-going.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call Deputy Dustin Deanne of the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station at 951-486-6887 or the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department at 951-776-1099.
