Valley Glen: On June 17, 2017 around 8:05 p.m., a pedestrian was crossing westbound Erwin Street at Coldwater Canyon Avenue in the marked south crosswalk. The pedestrian was hit by a 2008/Nissan/Versa. The driver immediately stopped and remained at scene to provide her information as required by law. She cooperated throughout the investigation.

The pedestrian was rushed to Holy Cross Hospital where he remains in serious condition. The pedestrian was not carrying any form of identification on him and we are asking for the public’s help to identify him. The pedestrian is a male, in his early 30’s, approximately 235 pounds., 6 feet tall, black hair, possibly of Hispanic or Asian descent with a mustache. The pedestrian appears to have three small pre-existing abdomen scars due to a prior medical procedure. He does not appear to have any tattoos.
