Driver Kills Man, Jumps Into Getaway Car In Los Angeles

A man died on Saturday after being struck by a driver, who escaped from the scene and is still at large.

The incident occurred at the intersection of Coldwater Canyon and Roscoe Boulevard in Sun Valley. A victim thought to be in his fifties or sixties was driving a silver Mini Cooper when he was hit by a Silverado pick-up truck that ran a red light, according to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).

“The force of the collision forced the cars into another vehicle, a silver Pathfinder that was stopped at the red light,” said the LAPD.

George Banna was driving the silver Pathfinder that was struck.

“I was stopped at a light and all of the sudden I heard a loud bang,” said Banna. “By the time I look, I see a truck spinning and coming towards me. The next thing I know, the truck hit me so hard that I hit the car next to me.”

The suspect jumped out of the pick-up truck and into a silver sedan, which had people inside it, then took off.

“We are being told by multiple witnesses who have video and took photos that the person that was driving the pick-up truck exited the car and entered into another silver sedan,” said the L.A.P.D.

The suspect then abandoned the silver sedan about a mile away close to Arleta Avenue and Branford Street. Police said the original pick-up truck he was in seems to have been stolen.

The victim killed in the crash has not been identified as of yet by police.
