Man Injured in Belmonte Bicycle Accident on Fowler Avenue
BELMONTE, CA (June 17, 2019) – A bicyclist sustained injuries after a hit-and-run vehicle struck him near Fowler Avenue on June 13.
Fresno Police revealed that a vehicle struck a man in his 50s while he was riding home. The vehicle escaped immediately after.
