Bicyclist killed in Stanton hit-and-run
A bicyclist died after being struck by a car in a hit-and-run in Stanton early Wednesday.
Authorities received a call at about 2:40 a.m. for a vehicle hitting a bicycle near the intersection of Chapman Avenue and Beach Boulevard, said Orange County Sheriff’s Department Lt. John Roche.
The cyclist, whose gender and identity have not been released, arrived at a hospital without a pulse and was pronounced dead, Roche said.
The vehicle fled in a car described as either champagne or gold in color. Garden Grove police later detained someone, and investigators were speaking to that person, Roche said.
