Andrew Walters Arrested in Deadly Riverside Hit-and-Run Crash
RIVERSIDE, CA (April 20, 2019) – A bicyclist was killed following a hit-and-run crash late Saturday evening in Riverside, authorities said.
The fatal crash happened around 11:07 p.m. at Limonite Avenue and Van Buren Boulevard.
Rigoberto Guzman, 30, of Jurupa Valley was riding northbound on Van Buren Boulevard when he was struck by a vehicle. He was flung to the far east side of the roadway, where witnesses spotted him and called 911.
Paramedics arrived within a few minutes and pronounced Guzman dead at the scene.
The vehicle that struck the victim reportedly sped off without rendering aid.
By early Sunday morning, detectives had gathered information indicating that the vehicle involved was parked in the 9000 block of 56th Street, just off of Van Buren, and they went to the residence.
The driver, a 26-year-old Andrew Scott Walters, was arrested and booked into the Robert Presley Jail on suspicion of hit-and-run resulting in death.
Walters posted a $75,000 bond and was released from custody a few hours later.
Alcohol or drugs do not appear to be factors in the crash, which remains under investigation.
