A Perris man was arrested on suspicion of murder after Riverside police investigators determined a Oct. 26 collision that killed a pedestrian was intentional.

Noe Perez-Gonzalez, 37, was booked on Nov. 19 on suspicion of murder and is being held on $5 million bail, the Riverside Police Department said.

On Oct. 26 at about 9:28 p.m., officers and medical personnel responded to the 2900 block of Cimarron Road after reports of a major injury traffic collision.  Officers located Patrick Leway, 43, who had been struck by a vehicle and sustained significant injuries.

He was taken to a local hospital where he later died, the Police Department said in a news release.

An investigation revealed a Toyota driven by Perez-Gonzalez was traveling west on Cimarron Road when the vehicle left the roadway and collided with the pedestrian, who was standing near the front of his own residence, the Police Department said.

Investigators later made the determination that the incident was not a vehicle accident, but rather an intentional act done by the driver.

Anyone with additional information regarding this arrest is urged to contact Detective Josh Ontko at 951-353-7135 or at jontko@riversideca.gov.
