Murrieta Woman Dies From Injuries in Pedestrian Accident

Alaina Cisneros, 26, died Thursday afternoon from critical injuries suffered Tuesday in a pedestrian accident at Jackson Avenue and Robards Way in Murrieta.

A woman who was hit Tuesday night while crossing a Murrieta street has died from her injuries.

Alaina Cisneros, 26, who goes by the nickname "Lainey," died at 4:21 p.m. Thursday afternoon at Inland Valley Medical Center, according to a coroner's report.

Cisneros was criticially injured at about 6:25 p.m. Tuesday as she walking across Robards Way at Jackson Avenue in Murrieta, according to police.

The impact occurred as the 17-year-old driver of a lifted Chevy pickup truck was making a left turn from Jackson onto Robards, Murrieta police Sgt. Jim Gruwell said.

The driver told police he did not see Cisneros, the sergeant said.

When paramedics arrived, Cisneros was unconscious in the roadway, police said.

Murrieta police said they did not immediately suspect drugs, alcohol or any other criminal acts contributed to the accident.

The young driver—with the permission of his mother—consented to a blood test and to be interviewed by police, Gruwell said.

The accident remains under investigation, Murrieta police Lt. Rob Firmes told Patch Thursday.

It can often take several days for traffic investigators to complete their assessments, the lieutenant said.

The photo of the truck is posted on a different story on www.swrnn.com - you can see it here: http://www.swrnn.com/2012/11/15/murrieta-woman-struck-by-teen-driver-succumbs-to-injuries/ It's clearly not lifted or "illegally modified," as many people are suggesting. Looks like a factory Chevrolet 2500 pickup truck with aftermarket wheels and tires (that are not oversized) to me.

I happen to live right down the street for this tragic accident. The lighting in the picture is not how it looks at night. It isnt bright at all, we have been complaining for years how poor the lighting is in our neighborhood. But the city hasnt done anything. They state its the builders and that if we want lights then the residents HAVE TO PAY FOR IT and the monthly bill. The poor lighting "may" have contributed to this BUT if the driver or any other driver was turning at a moderate speed this young lady would be spending Thanksgiving with her family. Inexperience behind the wheel is probably the reason why this young lady isnt here today. I make a turn off of Jackson at least 4-5 times a day and at least once is at night. I have seen people cross the street and have NEVER came close to hitting anyone OTHER THAN someone riding their bike and not slowing down (at night bikes dont have lights). The sad thing is that some of you think you have the right to pass judgement. The only comments that should be posted on here should be to the families of the young lady and to the young man who faces the possiblity of jail/fines. All the negativity doesnt help anyone, it only stirs the pot. Both families have been impacted and their lives will not be the same, Thanksgiving will never be the same for them but the young lady's family suffers the most as they will never be able to spend another day with her. As a Father, my heart goes out to the Mother and Father. GOD BLESS YOU

Well said Patrick. As a mother, i can't imagine ever having to bury a child. You hear about teenage drivers and accidents, but never think that a family member would be a statistic in yet another tragic accident that didn't need to happen. I pray for the 17 year old and his family that God will get you through this. Its a very tough time for our family. We will miss Lainey's beautiful smile and vibrant personality. As of 10PM on Thursday night, just 4 1/2 hours after her death, she had saved 4 lives with her liver, kidneys, and heart. Lainey lives on! Please remember to slow down and be aware of your surroundings! Life is too precious! God Bless Us All!

I couldn't agree more. I hope my mistakes are never published for the whole world to see. We live in such a judgmental and unforgivable society where everyone else is expected to be perfect except for the accuser. This is such a tragedy for BOTH families. This poor kid will have to live with this for the rest of his life. I lost the love of my life in July from a car accident. I have never blamed the driver who fell asleep at the wheel. Accidents happen. I pray both families find peace and comfort through our Savior Jesus Christ, which should be through us, as we are His tools. We should all be offering words of comfort, not hate.
