Crash Report

This is ADOT incident=3043753 (you won’t be able to click that link). ASDM indicates the hit and run, and also that the driver was 29/M implying the driver was identified.

The crash was consistent with the news reporting: same-direction. It indicates the motorist was driving in the BL, when he struck and killed the bicyclist; and the motorist was faulted for FAILURE TO KEEP PROPER LANE. This should enable 28-672, so the motorist should be charged both with the hit-and-run as well as 28-672 (unless other, more serious charges, e.g. if impairment is involved, are indicated).

The crash report is available online, City of Phoenix file number 15001540359 follows the usual formula. This should reveal the driver’s name, and from there can be case lookup’ed.

This particular crash report is on the updated (2014) form, with the block for distracted behavior.

The narrative and database all agree with the news reports, the narrative states:

On Thursday, August 13, 2015 at 0058 hours, Vehicle 1, a white Twon and Country Minivan, was traveling southbound on 51st Avenue in the curb lane. A Bicyclist, Robert Anderson, was riding his blue Ross Professional ten speed bicycle southbound in the bicycle lane. Witnesses [redacted] were behind the minivan  as it veered into the bicycle lane and impacted Robert. After the collision the minivan fled the scene with a witness following. The driver was later identified as Adrian Hernandez-Moreno by [a witness]. Robert diesd as a result of the injuries he sustained in the collision.
Due to restrictions in the records management system I was unable to check the box which shows the driver of vehicle 1, Adrian Hernandez-Moreno had and identification card only. He did not have a driver’s license


And FARS case 40549 is consistent.

Criminal Case

There is no criminal case, or citations, at this time (jan 2017) pending against the driver that can be found in case lookup.

Hit and run w/fatality is a class 2 or 3 felony, and as noted above assuming no more serious charges emerge, the driver should be cited for failure to keep proper lane and charged with 28-672.

Adrian Hernandez-Moreno  has a couple of traffic issues from 2010: PPD14032826 DRIVING W/DL SUSP/REV FOR FTP OR FTA  and FAILURE TO STOP AT STOP SIGN dob 06/86

  1. So upsetting to not find out nothing about my Brother RANDY AKA Gregory R Stout, nicknamed WOLFY the bike recycling train, many folks knew,or seen him pulling them bike trailers to earn income.. never herd in NEWS,newspapers&the memorial spot item’s get cleared up,tossed away,many other’s killed there on Grand Ave&35th. Like Randy’s like Phoenix doesn’t want folks who died get respected&the memorial items be left alone..for other’s to reminder of life’s are like a Song by STING musician, called “Fragile” . My DAD&other Bro, says a Cop died there like 3wks ago. Daf didn’t find it in new..neither.. Just so upsetting to not see anything yet. My brother was killed by a car riding his bike on June 25,2015. We not knowing what kind of car,who did it&open investigation can take up to 9/19 month’s Det.GIbbs said to my voicemail, and the worst isn’t only not knowing what happened to driver,who killed Randy.. No Justice for Randy”s wrongful DEATH..oh it’s just a homeless man..who recycled&saved his $ up to buy a truck to move back to few months ahead..Probation won’t let him leave Az,nor Dad,other Bro..who was with Randy at time of car driver killed our Randy..Family! Just feels robbef of his life.. because driver can say accentdenty hitting him.. was driver texting,or side tracks of streeing in Ca.needs to get Justice&knowing more information about it.. Other lil Bro seen his Brother mowed down by a they road bikes around 10p.m.. he’s febal at himself not feeling well since seen death of very close brothers they’ve been since boyhoods..road bikes&being BRO S.. now Alan is alone..&Dad feels like what is Az.going to do with the driver who flew his Son over the hood ran him over,from what lil we heard.. si far Case opened case, Det.says gots what’s needed to wrap up case,just short staffed excuse for stalling to slove under the rug as Dad’s worried about it..that’s what he thinks going to happen.. Then Driver gets away with killing a person..isn’t okay with Randys family members.. AZ needs bike lanes stupid cause not having any&deaths happening..more folks who bike these day’s, cost of gas,etc..
    The sad part $ my bro raised in recycling train to get a truck..ends in death cremation,went to a Furneral home. I feel the driver sould repay the expenses back to Randy”s family members&help get his ashes home cost of $125.00 US mailing to get them safely sent to BiG SIS home asap! And be jailed for the driver who killed my Bro,uncle,Son,Grandson.. bussiness,homeless,trucker,drummer,mostly Christian Man,who was helping family members trying to find a home,land together, then suddenly 2yrs.ago Az put on news mother died in van,took the men’s in jail,took all properties to get$ impounded,Mom died of natural causes.. So let’s kept the men’s from FREEDOM”s, plea bargain for$ for AZ.state. four folks went to AZ.for better than Ca. They dreamed about land with pet’s,&let seniors enjoy the land of not trailer park s in Ca.kicking off the elders.. So Randy,trucked them to AZ. Out of four folks,only 2still held in PO”s plea bargain traps.. riding bikes around for payment by State can get $ out of homeless folks who are in 2 greifs NOW with in two yrs. Just isn’t rights for the dead,homeless,no justice served..just greed, My Brother RANDY”s life,only 46yrs. Torn up by car!

  2. Words do not express the sadness I have for you and the many loved ones of your young brother. 12 years ago, I also lost my brother at a young age tragically and unexpectedly. You can never fill the hole in your hearts that he has left. Keep his memory alive by always thinking of the good times and speaking of them! So many people think if they talk about someone that has passed it will bring up sadness, truth is, the sadness is there 24/7. It never gets easier with time, only more time passes without making memories. Remembering hurts, hurting heals. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  3. this may sound a bit obtuse of me, but has anyone considered a wrongful death action? the evidence from that could be used to also bring a criminal case (I have read of this being done before elsewhere).
