Cyclist Killed in Hit-and-Run in Stanton
Authorities say a cyclist was killed Wednesday by a hit and run driver in Stanton. According to Orange County Sheriff’s office, the incident occurred at Chapman Avenue and Beach Boulevard. The victim was taken to UCI Medical Center in critical condition and later died from his injuries.
Reports indicate the suspect who fled the scene was driving a champagne colored Nissan. The suspect was subsequently arrested for an alleged probation violation. No additional suspects are being considered at this time. Further investigation as to the cause of the crash is expected as it is unclear whether the bicyclist was in the crosswalk or if the driver ran a red light at the time of the crash.
