A man was killed Friday at a Riverside bus stop when a motorist veered off the road and ran into him, then plowed into two parked cars.

The fatality occurred about 10 a.m. near the intersection of La Sierra Avenue and King Ranch Road, according to the Riverside Police Department.

Sgt. Ryan Taack said that the victim, whose identity was not immediately released, was seated at the Riverside Transit Agency stop when a 2015 Honda Civic going southbound on La Sierra went out of control, jumped the curb and hit him.

“The vehicle continued south, off of the roadway, and also struck two parked vehicles in the driveway of a residence,” Taack said.

He said the victim suffered catastrophic injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene minutes later by Riverside Fire Department paramedics.

The driver, identified only as a 25-year-old Riverside resident, was not hurt, nor was anyone else.

Officers questioned the motorist but did not arrest him.

“At this time, it does not appear drugs or alcohol were factors in the collision,” Taack said.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information was asked to contact the Traffic Bureau at 951-826-8722.
