    The California Highway Patrol, Monterey Area is requesting the public’s assistance to locate a vehicle and driver associated with a hit and run traffic collision.

    On May 7, 2013 at 3:45 PM, 48-year-old Robert Cruz of Watsonville was riding his bicycle out of a driveway on Salinas Road, north of Werner Road, when he was struck by a car that was traveling south bound on Salinas Road.  Mr. Cruz succumbed to injuries suffered as a result of the collision on Saturday, May 25 at a Bay Area Hospital.

    Witnesses reported seeing Mr. Cruz leave his driveway onto Salinas Road, directly into the path of a south bound vehicle, which was described as a 90’s model Honda Sedan, possibly an Accord, tan in color.  A windshield wiper located at the scene is believed to belong to the involved vehicle.  In addition to a possible missing windshield wiper, the vehicle was reported by witnesses to have damage to the windshield.
