A 54-year-old man was killed in a hit-and-run crash in Santa Ana early Monday and police are asking for the public's help identifying the driver that left the scene, officials said.
The incident was reported about 5:50 a.m. in the 2600 block of West First Street, according to the Santa Ana Police Department.
The man was struck by what is believed to be a white Toyota Tacoma as he was crossing the street and the driver of the pickup did not stop.
Surveillance video captured the truck as it was turning at an intersection and the vehicle appeared to have front-end damage.
Investigator Laure Bao said that the driver wouldn’t have been at fault in the crash, but since he or she fled the scene, they may face hit-and-run charges.
“We’re all human, we all have different reactions to traffic collisions, but you need to do what’s right and turn yourself in,” the investigator said.
The victim lived in a half-way house in the area, Bao said. He was eventually identified as John Redman.
