Local news

Police are searching for two vehicles believed to have fled the scene of a hit-and-run crash that left a man dead in Santa Ana early Friday morning.

The pedestrian was struck about 1:20 a.m. on Fairview Street just north of McFadden Avenue.

Arriving officers found a man down in the northbound lanes suffering from major head trauma, a spokesperson for the Santa Ana Police Department confirmed.

The victim, identified as 41-year-old Arturo Quevedo of Santa Ana, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Investigators believe the man was struck by two vehicles that fled the scene.

Debris from an early 2000s Mercedes-Benz and a newer model Hyundai were found at the crash site.

No suspect descriptions were available.

The driver of a third vehicle that struck the victim apparently stayed at the scene and was interviewed by officers, the Police Department stated.

Heavy fog was reported in the area at the time of the crash, but it is unclear if weather conditions were a factor.

The northbound lanes of Fairview Street remained closed for several hours during the investigation Friday morning.

Authorities are searching the area for any surveillance video that will assist in identifying the drivers involved.

Any witnesses to the crash are urged to call the Police Department at 714-245-8216.
