Moore was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators suspect the pickup is a late-model vehicle that is dark- colored and is possibly a Chevrolet, which would likely have noticeable front- end damage, Smith said.

Anyone who saw the collision or has any other relevant information was asked to call police at 714-892-4426.
