I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Police offer reward for hit-and-run driver who killed man in wheelchair


Sixth Street and Ramona Road
Alhambra , CA United States

A $20,000 reward will be offered for the arrest of the driver who hit wheelchair bound Shih-Siang Ho in Alhambra on December 1, 2009, the World Journal is reporting. Ho was crossing the street in his wheelchair at the intersection of Sixth Street and Ramona Road when he was hit. Los Angeles County Supervisor, Michael Antonovich, is renewing the call for public help and encouraging eye witnesses to provide clues for the investigation by contacting Alhambra policeman, Brandon Cardella, at 626-570-5199.

  1. I live on this street, in fact not more than 200 feet from where this terrible accident occurred. This section from Glendon Way southward toward the freeway tunnel (where the man was killed) all the way to Hellman Avenue — is one long drag strip. This is especially prevalent on weekend nights. The only Stop sign is the one coming northbound exiting the tunnel and I’d say 3 out of ten cars at best actually stop.

    There have been several people killed throughout the years here, including a young boy, due to the speeding cars. Placing patrol cars on occasion may be a deterrent, but then again, if it happens to be a “slow” weekend — the police will simply say that there isn’t a problem. My suggestion, as is the other residents on this block, is for the installation of speed bumps or some type of camera that takes shots of cars exceeding a safe speed. Even two speed bumps between Glendon and Ramona Road would slow down these cars.

    But I get the impression that our city council is not too terribly concerned about it.
