CORONA, California – Police believe that bicyclist Herman Villalobos was intentionally struck and killed Sunday by the driver of a pickup truck 3700 block of Windsong Street, according to a report by the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
Villalobos, 68, of Corona, was found in the roadway about 4:41 p.m. and transported by ambulance to a local hospital where he was treated for injuries but died about an hour later, the report said. The bicycle crash took place in the unincorporated area of Home Gardens.
The California Highway Patrol initiated an investigation found that evidence suggested the Villalobos was “intentionally run over by a vehicle,” according to the report.
Investigators from the Jurupa Valley Station and from the Sheriff’s Central Homicide Unit are investigating the incident as a possible murder.
Anthony Ray Lopez, 23, of Anaheim, was arrested by police on charges of the murder of Villalobos. Lopez was booked into the Robert Presley Detention for murder.
“Sometimes traffic accidents are really road rage or murder,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm. “Police investigating the circumstances involved in a crash can find clues that suggest it was not an accident as was the case here.”
The family of someone intentionally killed in a car accident can file a lawsuit against the person responsible for wrongful death, Seegmiller said.
