Anaheim, CA (November 29, 2022) – Saturday morning, November 26, Rick Dale Moore, age 30, was fatally struck by a hit-and-run driver on a roadway in Anaheim. 

Information from the police shows that the accident took place at the intersection of Magnolia Street and Katella Avenue inside a marked crosswalk. Moore was struck by a vehicle while he was traveling south on Magnolia Street on foot. 

The driver fled the scene immediately after striking the man. EMS was alerted and arrived shortly afterward. They pronounced Moore dead on-site. 

Police later described the vehicle as a dark-colored, older-model Chevrolet. Emergency crews closed the surrounding area briefly while officials performed preliminary and cleanup duties. 

Currently, authorities continue to investigate the details of the accident. 

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. 

California Pedestrian Accidents

About ten people lose their lives per day in auto accidents in California. A percentage of the fatalities that occur due to traffic accidents in the Golden State are pedestrians. Each year, close to 4,000 people are killed in these wrecks, and about 1,000 of them are pedestrians. This is about a quarter of all traffic fatalities in California. California is among the top three states in the nation with the most reported annual traffic crashes, along with Florida and Texas. Three common factors that cause fatal auto crashes in California include: 

  • Intoxication
