 Fatal Fullerton Bicycle Accident Chapman Ave, Ladera Vista DriveFULLERTON, Calif. (August 18, 2022) – A fatal, hit-and-run bicycle accident in Fullerton happened Thursday morning at Chapman Avenue and Ladera Vista Drive.

Elfego Andrade, 67, died following the 5:07 a.m. crash on August 18th, according to the Orange County Register.

Police and paramedics responded to the intersection and located the injured bicyclist, but the driver had fled the scene and left behind vehicle parts in the roadway.

The victim was reportedly hit from behind and thrown into a brick planter on the north side of the street, police said.

Paramedics transported the man by ambulance to a local hospital, but sadly he died from his injuries shortly afterward.
