Man, 54, Killed in Hemet Pedestrian Accident
RIVERSIDE COUNTY, Calif. (Oct. 8, 2018) — A 54-year-old man who was pushing a shopping cart was struck and killed Friday as he crossed the street.
The fatal crash took place about 6 a.m. on Oct. 5th at the intersection of Sanderson Avenue and Mustang Way, according to Hemet police.
The man was wearing dark clothing as he crossed Sanderson westbound in a marked crosswalk, but witnesses say the traffic light for the pedestrian was red. A driver in a Scion FR-S was traveling toward the intersection with a green light when the 20-year-old driver struck the victim.
The driver stopped and called 911 for help. The driver was questioned by police who were investigating the collision, but later released. No charges were made.
