Unreal. They guy was running from the scene of a different accident he got into earlier.
A toddler was killed and her mother, father and year-old brother seriously injured when a suspected drunk driver struck the family as they were on a bicycle ride Sunday afternoon in Rialto, officials said.
The suspect, Jesse Rolando Astorga, 27, of Phelan, Calif., has been charged with murder, said Lt. Joe Cirilo of the Rialto Police Department.
He is being held at West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga in lieu of $1-million bail.
Astorga was fleeing the scene of a nearby hit-and-run crash when he lost control of his SUV, which jumped the curb and hit the victims, Cirilo said.
Astorga was driving north in the 200 block of Willow Avenue as the family biked south on the sidewalk about noon Sunday, Cirilo said. The children were being pulled by their father’s bike in a two-wheeled basket, he said.
The kids were in a trailer… He lost control of his SUV….
