At about 9:19 p.m. on Wednesday, October 22, 2014, 51-year-old Teo Torres Ramirez was fatally injured in a hit-and-run crash in Cathedral City, reported The Press-Enterprise. A motorist struck Ramirez near the intersection of Ramon Road and Avenida Via Paloma, leaving him in the left lane of the westbound side of Ramon Road. A Cathedral City Fire Department ambulance then struck him a second time while transporting the victim of an unrelated crash to an area hospital. Last Friday, Ramirez succumbed to the trauma he suffered. Authorities are searching for the motorist who initially struck Ramirez and fled the scene. Witnesses, or anyone with additional information concerning the whereabouts of the driver or the vehicle, are asked to call the Indio office of the CHP at 760-772-8911.
With a population of 51,676, Cathedral City was the location of 164 motor vehicle collisions in 2011, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety’s most current crash data. Eight of the victims were pedestrians. Hit-and-run was a factor in 15 of the fatal and injury accidents.
