Eduardo Estrada Luevano, 36, was riding his motorcycle near the intersection of Standard Avenue and Walnut Street on March 17 when he was struck by a white Ford Econoline van, police reported at the time.

Luevano died of his injuries at a local hospital a short time after the crash, police said.

The driver of the van, who police said was Distancia, fled the scene of the crash but a witness gave the van’s license plate to police.

Investigators released Distancia’s name and photo last week and asked the public for help in locating him.
