Hemet: Boy, 5, Critically Injured in Pedestrian Accident

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

HEMET, California –  A 5-year-old boy regained consciousness Tuesday as he recovered in hospital after being seriously injured on Sept. 17 when he dashed into the path of a sports utility vehicle on Devonshire Avenue, near Gibbel Park, according to a Press Enterprise news report.

According to the Hemet Police Department, the driver of the Toyota Highlander that struck the boy stopped to render assistance to the injured child, but was not able to immediately locate his parents.  Paramedics transported the injured boy by ambulance and then by Mercy Air helicopter to a nearby hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries sustained in the pedestrian accident.

The boy’s father was finally located inside a nearby apartment as the child was on route to the hospital. Those who witnessed the pedestrian accident told police they saw the boy running back and forth across the street prior to the crash.

The child, who has not been identified by police, is now listed in critical, but stable condition, the Press Enterprise reported.

“Hopefully this young boy will have a complete recovery from his injuries,” Attorney West Thomas said.

Alcides Flores-Landaverde, 23, Killed in Riverside Hit and Run Pedestrian Accident

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

Alcides Flores-Landaverde, 23, of Hemet was killed by a hit and run driver as he crossed the intersection of Florida Avenue and Juanita Street, according to a press release issued by the Riverside County Sheriff Coroner Department.

The driver struck Flores-Landaverde about 2:37 a.m. Tuesday morning and fled the scene of the pedestrian crash, the report said. Witnesses who called 911 described the vehicle that fled as a small silver pickup truck. The Hemet man died at the scene of the crash at 2:52 a.m., the report said.

Police are investigating the pedestrian crash in an effort to learn more details about the vehicle from evidence gathered at the scene of the crash including debris and witness accounts.

Witnesses are asked to call the Hemet Police Department at 951-765-3725.

“Drivers who cause injury or death and flee the scene of a car accident face criminal charges such as vehicular manslaughter when they are eventually caught by police,” said Attorney West Thomas, founder of a Riverside personal injury law firm. “Under California law a driver must help the victim and remain at the scene of a crash, but sadly that’s not always the case.”
