Man, 25, Accused In Fatal Hit-And-Run Of Pedestrian

LANCASTER (CBS) — A man accused in the hit-and-run death of a pedestrian in Lancaster was behind bars Saturday.

Sheriff’s Lt. Paula Tokar says 25-year-old Isidro Peralta of Littlerock has been booked on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter, felony hit-and-run and felony driving under the influence.

According to authorities, Peralta was stopped at a checkpoint near Avenue J and Genoa Avenue about 11:30 p.m. Friday.

Deputies noticed blood on the bumper and the shattered windshield of his 1996 Ford Mustang, which also had a broken headlight, Tokar said.

Tokar said deputies retraced Peralta’s route and found the body of a man on 10th Street West near Avenue J-8.

    you racist bigot! not all Hispanics are like that.Ive seen white people do worse!

    • Patrick

      Now who is the racist bigot? You know it works both ways Michael. As far as white people doing worse possibly but for every 10000 Mexican crimes there is one white. unless you buy into the conspiracy that he police are just picking on the Mexicans and that is why they have the highest number in prison. Now for a bit of psychology – I bet the last presidential candidate you voted for was Obama!

      • Illegals GO HOME!

        Just because it was your brother who murdered the man in the street doesn’t mean you gotta call people names, Latino4life. <——- I'd be ashamed, if that's true.

    • italian_baker

      Call it bigoted, racist, or whatever you will but a Hispanic co-worker of mine told me that the un-written rule of the road for illegal immigrants who hit someone is to just keep going and don’t look back.

      • Illegals GO HOME!

        I believe that, italian! You hear about it all too often.

    Well if I was loaded and I ran over someone I would run also. Even if I wasn’t High I would probably take off.
    Maybe the pedestrian ran in front of the Poor Guy.

  • mandingo

    So many people in foreign countries do the same thing,that include Americans.usually after these things happen the offender leaves that country on the next available flight.There should be a mandatory 20 years sentance for such offences.

  • ME

    I white man just killed my friend in a hit and run and he has still not turned his self in. All you stupid idiots blaming Mexican/Hispanics are bunch or ignorant people. People making these type of comments are just a bunch of low class ignorant racist.
