NBC 6 reported that 26 year old Peter Garcia was arrested this week. He’s accused of leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in the death of cyclist, Jose Piedra Perez, back in May, 2021.
According to the report, Peter Garcia was driving a 2020 Mercedes-Benz when he struck Jose Piedra Perez on his bicycle in the area of Sunset Drive and SW 109th Avenue. The incident reportedly occurred around 1:40 in the morning.
It’s possible that Garcia hit Perez totally by accident. And at 1:40 in the morning, it could be argued that it was difficult to see Jose Piedra Perez. It could have been a horrible accident. But that’s why you never leave the scene of an accident.
Of course, Peter Garcia was not tested at the scene to see if he was under the influence.
