Authorities were seeking public help Tuesday to find a hit-and-run driver who fatally struck an 82-year-old man on a sidewalk in an unincorporated area near La Puente.

Ramon Reynoso was doing some type of work on the north sidewalk at 17959 Valley Blvd., west of Giano Avenue, when a white pickup truck crossed over the sidewalk and struck him at 9:44 a.m. Monday, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The driver fled without stopping or alerting authorities.

Reynoso was taken to Pomona Valley Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the CHP reported.

The white pickup truck is described as a 1990s Ford Ranger with a landscaping business logo on its doors, and it will likely have a broken right-side headlight and possible damage along the right side of the truck, according to the CHP.

The bed of the truck carried landscaping equipment.

The driver fled westbound on Valley Boulevard. A detailed description of the male driver was not released, but anyone with information about him or the vehicle was encouraged to contact Officer David Huggett at 626-338-1164.
