Fatal Hit-and-Run, 1 Killed in Canoga Park, CA
June 29, 2022

Los Angeles County, California (Los Angeles, CA) – On June 28, 2022, a 20-year-old man died early Tuesday morning in Canoga Park when a motorist in a pickup vehicle sideswiped a vehicle and then escaped.

The motorist accountable for the hit-and-run incident, which sent a car flying into a neighbouring telephone pole and strewn wreckage along the roadway, is now being sought by police. The maximum speed restriction at the junction of De Soto Avenue and Vanowen Street is 40 miles per hour. However, traffic investigators believe the truck driver was traveling at least 80 mph. Just before 12:30 a.m., a black Dodge Ram 1500 pickup collided with a Lexus automobile.

The LAPD stated that the Dodge driver was driving at least 80 mph and may have run a red light before colliding with the Lexus. The Lexus operator was killed in the incident and died on the spot. LAPD traffic investigators are seeking for the pickup driver, who fled the area after leaving his truck. Police bloodhounds were looking for the driver, who authorities suspect did not travel far from the area. The discovery of trinkets and bicycles in the back of the pickup truck led authorities to assume the operator is a salesman.

At least one witness, a third motorist in another automobile, was present during the incident. The motorist was driving in the same direction as the man who was killed, side by side when the light turned green.
