Drivers of Racing Challenger, Mustang Sought in Long Beach Hit-and-Run That Left Man Critically Injured
Police released photos Tuesday showing two men allegedly involved in a hit-and-run crash late last month in Long Beach in hopes that someone can identify them.
The men’s exhibition of speed, with one behind the wheel of a gray Dodge Challenger and the other a red Ford Mustang, caused the Challenger to strike a man walking on Cowles Street around 8:10 p.m. May 26, Long Beach police said in a news release.
Both men fled the scene while the pedestrian lay critically injured in the street, between Seabright Avenue and Hayes Avenue, officials said.
Police identified the victim only as a 32-year-old Long Beach resident. Paramedics transported him to a nearby hospital in critical condition, authorities said.
Anyone with information on the case can contact Detective David Lauro at 562-570-7355, or submit a tip anonymously via 800-222-8477 or www.LACrimeStoppers.org.
