Jelani Williams has been identified by authorities as the victim in a pedestrian accident that occurred on June 21 in Moreno Valley. Mr. Williams, a 28-year-old local resident, was on or near the intersection of Fir Avenue and Cognac Lane prior to 2:00 a.m. when he was struck by a vehicle under circumstances that have not been described. Authorities found him severely injured and the young man was taken to Riverside University Health System Medical Center where he tragically died from his injuries. The driver of the vehicle apparently fled the scene and did not try to help. The Moreno Valley Station Traffic Team is investigating and seeking out witnesses.

We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the victim during this difficult time.
