Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s detectives continue their investigation into a hit-and-run that occurred on December 26, 2016 at approximately 8:40 p.m. A 15-year-old teen was fatally struck in the 27500 block of Sierra Highway, Canyon Country. Earlier this week, SCV Sheriff’s investigators asked for the public’s assistance in locating a man that was seen at the site of the hit-and-run prior to law enforcement’s arrival but then quickly left. Detectives were interested in finding this individual so that he could be questioned as a witness to the hit-and-run. On Wednesday afternoon, detectives were able to make contact with the man who was at the scene of the hit-and-run. At this time however, there is no new information regarding the incident. The hit-and-run vehicle is described as a late to early 90’s four-door sedan. It has been described as tan, gold, or dark-colored. The sedan has a lower front end and may have possible damage to the front end or hood.
