Motorcycle Driver Killed in Hit-and-Run in Fallbrook
The suspect was arrested by police at his residence hours later
The California Highway Patrol-Oceanside was forced to respond to a fatal crash in November. The driver of the motorcycle involved was killed in a hit-and-run crash in the 4500 block of South Mission Road in Fallbrook.
The events happened when a 32-year-old man was driving a black Harley-Davidson northbound on South Mission Road, south of La Canada Road. Separately, a 33-year-old man was operating a black Toyota T-100 pickup truck westbound on La Canada Road at the intersection with South Mission Road. For reasons as yet unknown, the driver of the pickup drove into the intersection, colliding with the motorcycle.
The crash pushed the motorcycle into the oncoming lane, where a gray Tesla struck him. Following the violent impact, the driver of the Toyota fled the scene.
The CHP, San Diego County Sheriff’s Office deputies, firefighters, and paramedics responded to the scene. Sadly, authorities announced that the victim died at the scene from severe injuries.
The Driver Responsible for the Crash is Already in Custody
At approximately 6:30 p.m. on the date of the incident, the CHP was able to locate the suspect at his residence. Police arrested Francisco Esteban Rodas, 33, and took him to the Vista Detention Center. The driver faces multiple charges related to this incident. These include felony DUI and hit-and-run.
South Mission Road in La Canada remained blocked for several hours to clarify the investigation.
