Hit-And-Run Crash Kills Cyclist In Stanton

STANTON ( — A cyclist was killed Wednesday by a hit-and-run driver in Stanton, authorities said.

The crash was reported at 2:40 a.m. at Chapman Avenue and Beach Boulevard, Orange County Sheriff's Lt. Nathan Wilson said.

The cyclist, whose age and gender were not immediately reported, was taken to the hospital in critical condition, Wilson said. He later died from his injuries, sheriff's Lt. John Roache said.

The vehicle that struck the cyclist was described as silver or champagne in color and possibly a Nissan. One person was detained by Garden Grove police based on the info released by the sheriff's department.

The suspect, described as a 44-year-old man, was eventually arrested for an alleged probation violation, but as of midday, he had not been booked in connection with the hit-and-run.

A sheriff's spokesman said that no outstanding suspects in the hit-and-run were believed to still be at large.
