Pedestrian Killed in Coachella Hit-and-Run

A pedestrian died in a Coachella hit-and-run Tuesday night in Coachella. According to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, 36-year-old Juan Hernandez was struck by a vehicle around 11:30 p.m. on State Route 86 near Avenue 52.

Police say the pedestrian was first struck by a driver who fled the scene. Hernandez was lying in the roadway when he was hit by a second vehicle. The driver of the second vehicle stopped and cooperated with police.

Police Searching for Coachella Hit-and-Run Suspect

The Coachella Police Department is searching for the Coachella hit-and-run driver as they continue the investigation. Anyone with information about the driver should contact Officer Acevedo at (760) 863-8990.

“We hope the police are able to quickly locate this suspect. We don’t yet know which accident killed the victim, but by refusing to stop, the hit-and-run driver made the victim more vulnerable to be struck again. Such behavior is inexcusable,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
