Killer Caught a Year Later
Heperia-More than a year after a bicyclist was stuck and killed by a pickup truck, deputies arrested a man on suspicion of felony hit and run, officals said Friday.
Steven Loescher, 28 of Hesperia, was arrested Thursday in connection with the April 13, 2004 collision in which bicyclist Robert Vincent, 60 was stuck by a Dodge Ram pickup truck, according to sheriff's officials. The accident occurred at 9:30 p.m. at I Avenue and Buckthorn Road in Hesperia.
Loescher was arrested at his home in the 8500 block of C Avenue in Hesperia and booked into the Victor Valley Jail.
I remember when this guy got hit, his family said that he had been hit about 35 years ago and that every time he went for a ride and did not get hit he felt lucky. Police had also said when the accident occurred that it looked as if he had served into the traffic.
