On Monday detectives were on the hunt for the driver who was involved in a hit and run incident that left a driver of a motorcycle pretty badly injured in the Norwalk area over the weekend.
According to one of the News releases from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the incident happened right before ten thirty at night on Saturday. The crash happened near the intersection of Norwalk Boulevard and Lindale Street.
The release also stated that there was a male driver who was driving a mid 1980’s Ford Mustang convertible. The car was a dark green or even maybe a charcoal color gray. The Mustang was making a right turn from the eastbound Lindale Street to Southbound Norwalk Boulevard at the time of the incident.
Hit and Run Driver Leaves Motorcycle Driver Injured
The Sheriff’s Department say that the driver of the Mustang reportedly did a “burn-out” as he was making the turn. He lost control of the car and then went into the oncoming traffic. This is when he struck the man who was on the motorcycle in the northbound lane on Norwalk Boulevard.
The news release also stated that the motorcycle driver had suffered some major injuries. Some to his lower left leg, as well as some internal injuries.
The only description of the Mustang driver was that he was a male Hispanic. If anyone has any information regarding this hit and run, please call the Sheriff’s Department’s Norwalk Station Traffic Office. They can be reached at 562-863-8711. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can call the “Crime Stoppers” hot line at 800-222-8477.
It hasn’t been stated why the driver might have ran from the scene. Most hit and run incidents are cause from pure fear of hitting someone and not knowing what to do.
Car Crash Turns into Homicide Investigation
Today the Sheriff’s homicide detectives have to investigate a possible, deliberate car crash. The crash had left two innocent children injured and their forty-six year old father dead. The vehicle they were all in had slammed head on into a parked big rig.
The crash happened off the southbound Freeway south of Templin Highway in the Grapevine area. The crash happened pretty early in the morning, at one o’clock, according to the CHP (California Highway Patrol).
The father, Alan Dean Edwards had died in the crash as well as his two children, Erick Dean Edwards who was nine years old, and five year old Alona Marie Edwards. The identities were announced early Tuesday by the Los Angeles County Coroner.
Fatal Crash Tragically Kills Two Innocent Children
The California Highway Patrol turned the investigation over to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department homicide Detectives. The investigators do believe that this crash was probably intentional.
Lt. Hernandez Statement:
They found that the driver had to make several maneuvers to put himself in the path directly to collide with the tractor-trailer. Had he fallen asleep, he probably would have collided into … a fence.
