Alfonso Rios Dies Saving His Granddaughter in Hit-and-Run Accident in Dinuba [Tulare County, CA]

Dinuba, California – Dinuba Police reported a tragic incident in which Alfonso Rios, a loving grandfather, lost his life while walking his four-year-old granddaughter home from school. The fateful event occurred when they were struck by a hit-and-run driver.

Arianna Garcia, one of Rios’s granddaughters, shared her emotions, highlighting the kindness and love that characterized her grandfather. In her words, “My grandfather was the most loving person in the world.”

The tragic hit-and-run accident in Dinuba happened as they were crossing a pedestrian crosswalk on their way home. Despite the imminent danger, Alfonso Rios displayed his bravery by pulling his beloved granddaughter out of harm’s way, sacrificing himself in the process.

Arianna’s niece, Mayeli, was also present during the accident. She was airlifted to a nearby hospital, where doctors diagnosed her with a fractured arm and pelvis. However, a full recovery is expected, thanks to her grandfather’s heroic act.

Arianna Garcia reflected on the profound loss her family is experiencing. “My grandfather was the most compassionate person I’ve ever known,” she expressed emotionally. For this family, Poncho Rios’s absence represents an insurmountable void.

The tragic incident occurred just yards away from their home, in the middle of a pedestrian crossing. Arianna took the opportunity to call for caution. “Please be very careful,” she urged, pointing out the recklessness of some drivers in the area.
