One person was killed in a hit-and-run crash as the suspect fled the scene and ditched their car in Pomona on Friday night.
Officers responded to a crash at Towne Avenue and Philadelphia Street around 11:13 p.m.
Arriving officers found the victim inside his vehicle unresponsive. The victim was only identified as an adult male.
