27-year-old who Survived Cancer Killed in Ceres California Bicycle Hit and Run

On June 13, 2018, 27-year-old Aaron Bryant was struck and killed by the driver of a 2014 to 2015 grey GMC Sierra crew cab on the westbound service road to Moffett Road while riding his maroon BMX bike. It is believed that the impact sent Aaron over the handlebars and headfirst into a utility pole. According to The Modesto Bee, the driver did not stop, but police were called to the scene, and Bryant was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

The Modesto Police Department asked for the public’s help in locating the vehicle that had damage to its front quarter panel, according to a surveillance camera images of the event. Officers with the police department turned to the public for help, and they used a helicopter to try to find the vehicle.

At about 1:15 PM on June 18, 2018, police received a tip that the vehicle in question was located in the Ceres area. Witnesses say that the vehicle may have been at the Richland Apartments near Richland and Hatch. The police impounded the vehicle, but they have not made any arrest during this ongoing investigation.

Aaron’s brother Micah Bryant posted on Facebook that his brother had survived cancer at the age of six and that his mother Beverly had devoted her life to seeing that Aaron received the best care possible. Micah says that when Aaron’s care became too much for his mother, he moved back to California from Alaska in 2015 to help care for his brother. A Go-Fund-Me account created by his cousin says that cancer required doctors to remove part of Aaron’s brain leaving him unable to care for himself.

Modesta Police say that the investigation is continuing, and they hope to be able to announce an arrest in the near future.
