Carlos Hernandez, 22, of Jurupa Valley was arrested on felony hit and run charges and Andrea Michael, 32, of Jurupa Valley was arrested for acting as an accessory to a felony hit and run, according to a Riverside County Sheriff’s report.

Hernandez and Michael were traveling westbound on Mission Boulevard when they struck a woman as she was attempting to cross the intersection where Mission Boulevard meets Opal Street in Jurupa Valley. The struck woman was pronounced dead at the scene, Riverside County Sheriff’s Sgt. James Woodland said in an initial report.

At the time the incident occurred, the vehicle was described as a “light-colored Chevy or GMC pickup truck with moderate front end damage.”

Supporting evidence compiled after the incident prompted the issuance of a felony warrant for Hernandez and Michael. The two remained at large in spite of the warrants until they were located by authorities on Sunday, according to Sheriff’s Sgt. Mike Manning.

Hernandez and Michael were arrested and taken into custody.  Following an investigation it was determined both individuals were responsible parties in the incident, according to Manning.

The two were booked at Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside.
