69-Year-Old Man Dies after Struck by Hit-and-Run Driver near Reedley
FRESNO COUNTY, CA (January 4, 2022) – Robert Holguin was killed in a hit-and-run crash near Reedley Monday evening.
The fatal crash happened around 7:00 p.m. on January 3, near the intersection of Alta Avenue and Manning Avenue. According to CHP reports, someone called 9-1-1 after they spotted Holguin lying next of his bike in the roadway.
Responding officers performed CPR on Holguin, but he later died at the scene.
Holguin was a 69-year-old Reedley resident, according to the Fresno County Coroner’s Office.
During a preliminary investigation, officers determined that Holguin had been riding his bike on the right shoulder of the road and was staying out of the way of traffic. For unknown reasons, a truck reportedly swerved onto the shoulder and hit the back tire of the bike, causing Holguin to be thrown off onto the road.
After the crash, the driver of the truck fled the scene without rendering aid.
Officers believe the truck should have minor damage to the front right grill. They asked anyone with information to call the California Highway Patrol.
