On Monday night, a Riverside hit-and-run accident claimed the life of a man while he was crossing the street. Shortly before 8:30 p.m., an eastbound vehicle struck the 19-year-old man as he was crossing Indiana Avenue. According to witnesses, the car was a newer model dark-colored Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic. The driver of the vehicle sped away from the scene. The pedestrian later died at a local hospital from his injuries.
