MORENO VALLEY, California — Daylon Woods, 21, of Moreno Valley died Sunday morning several hours after he was struck by a vehicle and thrown onto the sidewalk on Perris Boulevard at Filaree Avenue, according to the Riverside County Coroner’s office.
At around 11:43 p.m., the Moreno Valley man was hit by an unknown driver and taken to Riverside County Regional Medical Center in critical condition where he later died from his injuries about 5:57 a.m. on Sunday, the report said.
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is still investigating the Moreno Valley pedestrian accident and asking any witnesses to contact the Moreno Valley Police Department Traffic Division at (951) 486-6900. After hours and on weekends the Department may be reached at (951) 776-1099.
“It’s a tragedy anytime someone so young gets killed in an accident like this,” said attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm. “My condolences are with his family and friends.”
Seegmiller explains that drivers are required under California law to exercise the utmost care while behind the wheel and be alert for pedestrians and other motorists. While Woods may have been running across the street it is common for pedestrians to jay walk and drivers should be aware of what is in front of them at all times.
