A 21-year-old bicyclist was fatally struck on a Corona street by a motorist who fled the scene and remains at large, authorities said Friday.

Benjamin Montalvo of Corona was hit about 11:50 p.m. Thursday in the 1600 block of Rimpau Avenue, near Olympic Drive, according to the Corona Police Department.

Officer David Dopson said Montalvo was riding with two friends southbound on Rimpau when a dark-colored sedan slammed into him from behind.

“The driver continued southbound, failing to stop to render aid to the victim,” Dopson said.

Paramedics reached the location within a few minutes and pronounced the bicyclist dead at the scene.

There was no specific information about the vehicle that hit him.

Anyone with information was asked to contact Dopson at 951-817-5845.
