Riverside Man Killed in Hit-and-run Crash on Pomona Freeway
DIAMOND BAR, Calif. (July 11, 2018) — Daniel Gutierrez, 39, of Riverside, died in a hit-and-run collision on the Pomona (60) Freeway near Grand Avenue on Tuesday night, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The fatal crash took place in the eastbound lanes of the freeway about 8 p.m. last night. The Riverside man was riding his 2016 Harley Davidson motorcycle on the freeway when he was struck by a vehicle whose driver lost control after colliding with two big rig trucks. One of the trucks failed to stop after the collision. The 25-year-old woman driving the car suffered minor injuries and was treated by paramedics.
Paramedics responded and rushed the injured rider to a hospital where he later died of his injuries.
Police described the suspect’s vehicle as an older-model red Freightliner truck that was pulling a red trailer. Witnesses may contact the CHP’s Baldwin Park Area office at (626) 338-1164.
