Police Search for Suspect Who Killed Driver in Canoga Park Hit and Run

CANOGA PARK(CNS) – A man was killed in a violent hit and run crash in Canoga Park and police Tuesday are searching for the driver who left the scene.

Police were called at approximately 12:30 a.m. to DeSoto Avenue and Vanowen Street where they learned the driver of a black Dodge Ram truck ran a red light and slammed into a Lexis.

The driver of Lexis was ejected with the impact of the collision and struck a utility pole, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Lizeth Lomeli told City News Service.

“The driver [of the Dodge Ram] was traveling at a high-rate of speed, in excess of over 80 miles an hour,” LAPD Capt. Andy Neiman told Fox 11, adding that the Dodge’s airbags had exploded.

The driver of the Lexis was pronounced dead at the scene, Lomeli said.

Debris from the collision was scattered throughout the scene.

The driver of the Dodge Ram ran way from the scene and a LAPD K-9 unit attempted to track him but the search was called off at around 5 a.m.
