Marshall Blanchard

82-year-old Ramon Reynoso died on Monday morning, August 24th, in a hit-and-run accident that occured in La Puente, California. The auto-pedestrian collision took place before 9:44 a.m. on Valley Boulevard.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the victim was doing unspecified work on the north sidewalk in the 17989-block of Valley Boulevard near Giano Avenue. The investigators stated in the accident report that a white pickup truck struck Reynoso for unknown reasons.

The driver of the vehicle fled the scene without stopping or rendering help to the man. First responders found the victim lying on the roadway and transported him to Pomona Valley Hospital, where medical personnel later pronounced him dead.

The hit-and-run driver remains at large, and there’s no description of the person or his or her vehicle. The CHP is heading the investigation into the occurrence and requests anyone with relevant information to contact officer David Huggett on the listed line.

A hit-and-run accident is not uncommon in California, and it is a criminal offense under the state’s Vehicle Code. A person would be guilty of the crime if he or she, after a collision, fails to stop at the scene, render help to an injured person, and report the accident to the relevant authority.

The person would also be guilty of the offense if he or she, in the event of property damage, leaves the scene without leaving behind his or her contact information. A driver without liability in an accident can also face a hit-and-charge if he or she flees the crash site without speaking to the relevant law enforcement or traffic authority.
