Man Identified as Bicyclist Killed in Ontario by Alleged Hit-and-run Driver

ONTARIO, CA (July 30, 2019) – Thomas Shane Pinto was identified by officials with the San Bernardino County Coroner as the person who was killed by a suspected hit-and-run driver early in the morning on Wednesday in Ontario. The July 31 incident occurred on Mission Boulevard, close to Baker Avenue and to the west of it.

The time was roughly 1:10 a.m.

Reports say Pinto had been riding a bicycle when he was struck by a vehicle. He was killed in the incident. Pinto was 22 years old and a resident of Pomona.

The driver involved in the incident left the accident site. The driver was located by authorities near the scene of the crash. He was identified as Julio Tapia, 31 years old and a resident of Ontario, according to the San Bernardino Police Department.

Following a report of a vehicle that looked questionable on Baker Avenue, police found Tapia. He was with a damaged vehicle. Authorities said the Tapia had suffered minor injuries, and he is alleged to have been intoxicated.

Police arrested Tapia on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter, hit-and-run, and driving under the influence. Investigators are continuing their fact-gathering work regarding the incident.
