On January 12, 2016, Francisco Rios, 92, was struck and killed in Lamont, California. According to Bakersfield Now, Rios was an active man for his age.  On the morning of this fatal accident, Rios was walking to his local church that morning for 8:00 a.m Mass.

Reports say he was struck by an 18-year-old driver at the intersection of Habecker Road and Camino La Jolla Street. The driver, who at this time is unnamed, was distracted and did not see Mr. Rios in the roadway. Drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor at this time.

Thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Rios family as they deal with this tragic loss of a loved one.
