Sun Valley: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Valley Traffic Division are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects responsible for the Hit and Run traffic collision that killed a 58-year-old resident of Glendale.

On February 6, 2021, around 9:05 a.m., a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck was travelling north on Coldwater Canyon Boulevard when it ran a red light at Roscoe Boulevard. The Silverado truck collided with the driver’s side of an older model Morris Minor, driving west on Roscoe Boulevard. The driver of the Silverado abandoned the truck at the scene of the collision and was picked up by a second vehicle, a 2-door silver Hyundai Tiburon, which was following behind the Silverado prior to the collision. The driver of the Tiburon and the driver of the Silverado fled without identifying themselves or attempting to render aid to the victim. The Tiburon was located abandoned in the vicinity.

Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and pronounced the victim in the Morris Minor dead at scene. His name has not been released pending notification to next of kin.

Drivers are reminded that if they become involved in a collision, they should pull over and stop as soon as it is safe to do so, notify emergency services, and remain at the scene to identify themselves.
