August 24, 2004|From Times Staff Reports

California Highway Patrol officials Monday were searching for two hit-and-run drivers who struck and killed a homeless man near Fontana on Sunday.

Manuel Frias Vera, 35, was hit by a station wagon as he tried to cross Foothill Boulevard in an unincorporated area of San Bernardino County about 8:15 p.m. Sunday. The impact tossed Vera to the other side of the four-lane highway, where he was struck by an SUV, said CHP Officer Jessie Holguin. Vera's body was dragged more than 50 feet, but neither driver stopped, Holguin said.
