Desiree Taitano Killed, Jose Hidalgo Arrested in Corona Hit-and-Run Crash

 
CORONA, CA (May 14, 2019) – A woman died after a hit-and-run driver struck her on 91 Freeway in Corona on Monday, May 13.
 
Family members identified the deceased as 33-year-old Desiree Taitano, of Riverside.
 
Taitano and a friend traveled in separate vehicles around 2 a.m. on the eastbound 91 near Green River Road, the friend told California Highway Patrol officials.
 
Desiree followed her friend who was in possession of her dogs. However, the dogs started acting up in the front car, so they both stopped on the side of the freeway.
 
Desiree got out and walked up to the front car to check on her dogs. Then, from out of nowhere, a truck struck her. The driver fled the area.
 
Paramedics rushed Desiree to the hospital, where she later succumbed to her injuries.
 
Officers stated that they found the suspect’s abandoned vehicle around 500 feet from the crash site. The suspect was identified as 48-year-old Jose Hidalgo, of Corona. Authorities arrested him for felony hit-and-run and DUI.
 
According to the victim’s wife, Anja Taitano, Desiree loved to rescue stray animals and help any person in need.
