We see examples of these cases pretty much on a daily basis. On the night of March 28, 2016 a male pedestrian was seriously injured in a Fullerton hit-and-run crash. According to a news report in The Orange County Register, the collision was reported in the 400 block of West Orangethorpe Avenue when a vehicle struck a man running across the eastbound lanes. The driver left the scene. The victim was transported to an area hospital with severe injuries. Police are still looking for the hit-and-run driver. Continue reading →
