On Monday, June 12, 2023, at approximately 11:15 p.m. officers responded to the 2500 block of South Riverside Avenue, for an unknown injury traffic collision involving a vehicle and a pedestrian.

Preliminary investigation indicates the suspect was driving northbound in the #1 lane of Riverside Avenue approaching Santa Ana Avenue.
