57-year-old Domingo Cordova of Indio was struck crossing a street on June 28, but police have since ascertained the type of vehicle involved.
According to Indio police spokesman Ben Guitron, a newer model silver- colored pickup, possibly a Dodge Ram, hit the man as he attempted to cross Shadow Palm Avenue, just west of Monroe Street, at 9:02 p.m.
“The truck fled the scene southbound on Monroe,” according to a police statement.
Witnesses called 911, and first responders reached the location within a couple of minutes, pronouncing Cordova dead at the scene.
There are no crosswalks within that section of road, and it was unclear whether the pickup driver had time to stop before the victim appeared in his path.
Investigators said the vehicle will likely have damage to the front driver’s side, with both the headlight and fog light busted.
Anyone with information was urged to contact the police department at 760-391-4051, or 760-341-7867.
