A 45-year-old Highland man who was riding a skateboard on a Highland street was struck and killed early Friday, July 22, by what the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said was a hit-and-run driver.
The driver had not been caught and there was no description of the car.
The collision happened at about 12:48 a.m. on East 3rd Street east of Tippecanoe Avenue, the Sheriff’s Department said. It appeared that the man was riding a skateboard westbound when he was hit by a car also traveling west, the department said. The car continued west after the crash.
Deputies found the man lying unresponsive in the westbound lanes. His name has not been announced.
The Sheriff’s Department asks that anyone with information on the case contact Deputy Caudle at 909-364-2000. Information may be left anonymously on the WeTip hotline at 800-782-7463 or on the website at wetip.com.
