A pedestrian was hospitalized after suffering serious injuries in a hit-and-run incident in Fontana on Oct. 21, according to the Fontana Police Department.
Police are seeking the public's help in identifying the motorist who was involved in this collision, which took place at about 12:20 a.m. on Cherry Avenue in the southwestern area of the city.
The preliminary information indicates the victim, a 32-year-old man, was walking across Cherry from east to west when he was struck in the No. 2 lane of southbound Cherry near Woodland Drive.
