Ramon Reynoso, 82, Killed in La Puente Hit-and-Run Crash on Valley Boulevard
LA PUENTE, CA (August 29, 2020) – An elderly pedestrian killed after an alleged hit-and-run collision along Valley Boulevard on Monday has been identified.
The California Highway Patrol said 82-year-old Ramon Reynoso, of Los Angeles, died following the accident on August 24.
The incident began when Reynoso was gardening and installing sprinklers outside the U-Haul building on Valley Boulevard. At the same time, a white pickup truck was going west in the No. 3 lane.
According to reports by KTLA and San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the vehicle swerved right for an unknown reason and then crossed over the sidewalk.
CHP affirmed that the driver of the pickup ultimately struck Reynoso who was walking in the area. The crash occurred at around 9:45 a.m., just west of Giano Avenue.

Fire department officials along with the paramedics responded to the scene and found the elderly man left lying on the ground as a result of the collision.
Medical personnel rushed him to Pomona Valley Medical Hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries. Meanwhile, the motorist initially came to a stop on the street after hitting the pedestrian.
CHP determined that the car made a U-turn and drove by the crash site. The suspect made another U-turn, passed the scene of the accident and finally fled westbound on Valley Boulevard.
Officers described the suspect vehicle as a white 1990s Ford Ranger with a landscaping business logo on the doors, and landscaping equipment in the truck’s open bed area.
The truck apparently sustained a broken right-side headlight and damage along its right side upon impact. The tragic incident remains under investigation.
