Fallbrook Man Arrested for Rancho Cucamonga Vehicle Versus Pedestrian Hit-and-Run

RANCHO CUCAMONGA – A 30-year-old Fallbrook man was arrested for a DUI hit-and-run vehicle versus pedestrian collision and subsequent pursuit officials said.

Deputies from the Rancho Cucamonga station responded to the area of Spruce Avenue and Foothill Boulevard on Sunday at around 9:54 p.m.for the report of the hit-and-run collision. The caller reported the suspect’s vehicle description and the direction he fled. When they arrived they made contact with the pedestrian who suffered a laceration to his forehead. A park ranger in the area saw the suspect vehicle occupied by one Hispanic man in a parking lot and reported the sighting to dispatchers.

Deputies attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver failed to yield. Deputies pursued the vehicle, which was swerving between lanes, and running red lights with no regard for other vehicles on the road. Suspect Jesus Cirilo Rodriguez stopped his vehicle on Foothill Boulevard and Vineyard Avenue. Rodriguez was taken into custody and booked into the West Valley Detention Center. He is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
