A 34-year-old man struck and killed while walking along a west Riverside street on Christmas night was identified Tuesday.

Jarron Bonner of Riverside was fatally injured about 11 p.m. Sunday on Tyler Street, just south of Hole Avenue, according to the Riverside Police Department.

Sgt. James Elliott said Bonner was walking in southbound lanes when a 2001 Lincoln sedan driven by a 25-year-old motorist approached at an unknown speed.

Elliott said the driver, whose identity was not disclosed, did not see the victim in time to stop and hit him.

The motorist, who was not hurt, immediately pulled over.

Patrol officers and paramedics reached the location within minutes and found Bonner in grave condition. He was taken to Riverside Community Hospital, where he died shortly after midnight Monday.

The driver was questioned but not arrested.

The investigation is ongoing.
