At about 5:20 p.m. on Wednesday, July 23, 2014, a vehicle struck and killed 55-year-old cyclist Matthew Carp in Menifee, reported The Press-Enterprise. While speeding in a black Acura along Domenigoni Parkway, 23-year-old Luis E. Aranda-Llamas struck Carp from behind east of Lindenberger Road. Carp died at the scene. Another cyclist with whom he had been riding narrowly avoided injury. Authorities arrested Aranda-Llamas on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter and displaying a false license plate.
