WHERE: LIMONITE AVE. & ETIWANDA AVE., JURUPA VALLEY

DETAILS: On Thursday, July 26, 2018, at 9:55 p.m., officers assigned to the Jurupa Valley Police Department responded to the area of Limonite Avenue and Etiwanda Avenue, in the city of Jurupa Valley, regarding a vehicle versus pedestrian traffic collision.  American Medical Response and California Fire Department personnel also responded to the scene. The adult male pedestrian was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased.  The Jurupa Valley Traffic Team responded to the scene and assumed investigation.

Alcohol and/or drug impairment do not appear to be a factor in this collision at this time.
