Ontario, CA- Bicyclist Killed After Being Struck By A Car In A Hit-And-Run DUI Crash
A bicyclist was killed when he was struck by a car being driven by a driver being accused of being drunk at the time of the crash early Wednesday, July 31, 2019 in Ontario, CA. The bicyclist was reportedly riding his bicycle around 1:10 am at Mission Boulevard and Baker Avenue prior to the crash. The bicyclist was riding his bike west when he was hit by the said vehicle just west of Baker Avenue. Paramedics declared the bicyclist deceased at the crash site. The driver accused of being drunk at the time of the crash left the crash site after the accident. However, he was found by authorities a little over an hour after the accident after police got a report of a “suspicious occupied vehicle” parked in a parking lot on Baker Avenue, south of Mission Boulevard. The driver suspected as the perpetrator of the hit-and-run accident was reportedly inside the said car, bleeding from his head and face. The driver was booked on the suspicion of drunken driving, hit-and-run, and vehicular manslaughter.
