A 37-year-old Perris resident died Monday morning, April 8, after being struck by a vehicle that failed to stop, the California Highway Patrol said.

The collision involving the pedestrian happened between 3:15 a.m. and 7 a.m. on the shoulder of Cajalco Road east of Decker Road in the unincorporated Riverside County community of Mead Valley, west of Perris. The CHP was called around 7:40 a.m.

Investigators were able to narrow the window of when the man was hit because a family member said he was dropped off at Cajalco Road and Harvill Avenue, about a mile away from the collision site, at 3 a.m., said Officer Javier Navarro, a CHP spokesman.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Coroner’s Office on Tuesday identified the victim as Alfredo Aparicio.

Navarro said investigators are looking for clues that will lead to the identification of the car and its driver and asked anyone with information to call 951-637-8000.
