Driver stays with pedestrian that he hit, according to police


UPDATE: Earlier we shared the story about a pedestrian being killed early Tuesday morning and it was inferred that street racing was involved, etc. But according to the police report, the driver who hit the man, stayed at the scene of a crime. Here's what the press release states:


On August 06, 2018, at 9:31 P.M., officers from the Moreno Valley Police Department responded to a report of a major injury traffic collision near the intersection of Alessandro Blvd and Flaming Arrow Dr, in the city of Moreno Valley. 

Officers from the Moreno Valley Police Department, Moreno Valley Fire Department personnel and AMR Paramedics arrived within minutes and discovered a vehicle had collided with a male pedestrian.  The pedestrian sustained major injuries and was immediately transported by paramedics to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.  The driver of the vehicle did not sustain any injuries and remained at the scene of the collision.  It is unknown if alcohol and drugs were a contributing factor to this collision.  

Members of the Moreno Valley Traffic Reconstruction Team responded and are investigating this collision.  Eastbound and westbound lanes of Alessandro Blvd are closed between Perris Blvd and Flaming Arrow Dr during this investigation.
