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.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Santa Clarita Valley Station, Detective Cramer – Traffic Division at (661) 255-1121. If you prefer to provide information anonymously, you may call “Crime Stoppers” by dialing (800) 222-TIPS (8477), or use your smartphone by downloading the “P3 Tips” Mobile APP or “P3 Mobile” for the hearing impaired on Google play or the App Store, or by using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org.
