Roy Vasquez Jr Arrested in Ceres Pedestrian Accident on Mitchell Road near Whitmore Avenue

Ceres, California – Police have arrested a suspect in connection with a hit-and-run crash that left a pedestrian dead last month in Ceres.

A vehicle struck Isaac Ishak, 56, of Ceres on Mitchell Road, just south of Whitmore Avenue, and fled the scene on September 30.

Police arrested Roy Joseph Vasquez Jr., 41, of Ceres on Thursday, October 22, in connection with the accident.

Investigators said Ishak was walking across Mitchell Road when he was hit by a northbound van.

The driver reportedly stopped for a while then fled the scene.

Ishak was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.

Police arrested Vasquez Jr. at a home in the 2400 block of Glendale Avenue in Modesto. He was booked into the Stanislaus County Jail for hit-and-run causing death, forging or altering a vehicle registration, driving while license suspended, and driving without insurance.

The crash is under investigation.
