On Easter Sunday, April 9, 2023, at approximately 4:00 am, Mr. Cordova was crossing Hoover Street from east to west in an unmarked crosswalk at 74th Street. Just before getting to the other side, a silver-colored sedan, struck him causing fatal injuries.

Paramedics with the Los Angeles Fire Department attempted life-saving measures but pronounced Mr. Cordova deceased at scene.
