On Sunday, October 29, 2023, at approximately 8:35 p.m., officers responded to the area of Cedar Avenue and Foothill Boulevard for an unknown injury traffic collision involving a vehicle and pedestrian. Officers arrived on scene at approximately 8:38 p.m. Rialto Fire Department arrived minutes later and personnel administered life-saving measures to the adult male pedestrian, who sustained life threatening injuries. Don Swan was found to be the driver and sole occupant of a blue Toyota Camry. He did not sustain any injuries during the collision.

Preliminary investigation indicates the pedestrian was walking south on Cedar Avenue along the raised center median. Swan was driving south on Cedar Avenue in the #1 lane. For unknown reasons, the pedestrian stepped into southbound lanes of traffic outside of the crosswalk, and into the path of Swan’s vehicle. The pedestrian was transported to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center where he later succumbed to his injuries. The investigation of the collision is still ongoing.

Drugs or alcohol are not a factor in this collision. Don Swan remained at scene and fully cooperated with the investigation.
