Fatal Riverside County Car Crash Death of Young Hit-and-Run Suspect – Obituary
In a heart-wrenching incident that unfolded in Riverside County, a teenager suspected of a hit-and-run accident faced arrest, a collision that resulted in the untimely demise of a toddler and inflicted injuries upon her mother. The California Highway Patrol disclosed the identity of the suspect, a 17-year-old resident of Perris.
The fateful accident transpired in the vicinity of Steele Peak Drive and Palm Street, nestled within the Mead Valley area, approximately at 7:48 p.m. on a somber evening.
As fate would have it, the young suspect was navigating a dirt bike along Steele Peak Drive when he tragically collided with a 3-year-old girl who was innocently riding her bicycle.
Beside her was her mother, who was accompanying her on her walk. Notably, both mother and daughter were on the right side of the roadway at that fateful moment, as confirmed by the California Highway Patrol.
Following this harrowing collision, the teenage suspect hastily departed from the scene without extending any form of assistance to the victims or contacting the necessary authorities, a grave departure from moral responsibility, officials have stated.
Regrettably, the toddler was promptly transported to a local medical facility, but despite all efforts, she succumbed to her grievous injuries, leaving a void that can never be filled. Meanwhile, her mother, who also suffered from the traumatic crash, was left with moderate injuries, serving as a painful reminder of the tragic incident that unfolded on that ill-fated evening.
