HESPERIA, California (June 16, 2017) — Moises Chequete, 15, of Hesperia died Thursday of injuries he suffered when he was struck by a hit-and-run driver on Santa Fe Avenue, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner.

The fatal crash took place about 11:35 a.m., just north of Mission Street. The report stated that Chequete was struck from behind by the vehicle as he was walking northbound in a designated bicycle path. Paramedics rushed to help the teen and took him by ambulance to Desert Valley Hospital, but sadly he died of his injuries in the emergency room, the report said.

The Victor Valley News reported the driver who struck the teenager, fled the scene of the crash without stopping to help him. They later located the vehicle, a 1992 Chevrolet Corsica, at C Avenue and Yucca Street as well as a suspect they believe was driving it. The suspect has been detained and is being questioned by police.

The Hesperia Sheriff’s Station is heading up the investigation into the tragedy.


Those of us at Johnson Attorneys Group offer our sincere condolences to the family of this young man as they cope with this tragedy.

There is no worse tragedy than losing a loved one in a hit-and-run collision. Not only is a family dealing with the loss of the loved one, but also the anger and sadness associated with the fact that someone could be so callous as to drive off and leave their relative alone without calling for help.

While there is no way to undo what has been done, there are legal remedies available to surviving family members in cases such as this one. For example, criminal charges such as felony hit-and-run may be brought against the driver as well as a separate civil lawsuit. The civil lawsuit can help a family obtain financial compensation. This is helpful to grieving families as they will likely take time off work during this difficult time and there will be other expenses such as funeral costs and medical bills.

To get help with any civil claim, contact Johnson Attorneys Group at 800-235-6801 to request a free consultation.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
