Indio, CA. Victim of Fatal Pedestrian Accident on Avenue 44 Identified as Jose Francisco Pinela

Indio, CA. (July 3, 2018) – The Riverside County Coroner has confirmed the identity of the man who was sadly killed in a pedestrian accident Sunday morning. 65-year-old Jose Francisco Pinela is the man who was struck by a vehicle on Avenue 44, west of Golf Center at approximately 3:42 a.m. Pinela, unfortunately, died from the injuries he suffered in this accident.

According to the Indio Police Department, Pinela was attempting to cross Avenue 44 when he was tragically struck by a vehicle. Paramedics arrived on the scene quickly to help the injured pedestrian. Pinela was immediately transported to Desert Hospital with serious, life-threatening injuries. Sadly, he passed away from those injuries just a short time after arriving at the hospital.

The driver of the vehicle reportedly told the police that they did not see Pinela crossing the avenue. Currently, a detailed investigation is being conducted in order to determine whether or not the driver will face criminal charges, or who may have been at fault for the accident.

We would like to offer our sincerest sympathies and our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the family members and friends of Jose Francisco Pinela during this tragic time.
