The crash resulted in minor injuries of at least one person, California Highway Patrol officials said.

It appeared that the hit-and-run vehicle continued to travel northbound on Sierra Highway and may have also caught fire after the collision, CHP officials said.

According to officials with the Palmdale Sheriff’s station, a deputy assisted California Highway Patrol in detaining a hit-and-run suspect in a vehicle on the 7700 Sierra Highway block in Acton.

The Palmdale Sheriff’s Station could not confirm if the detainment of the suspect was related to the hit-and-run incident on the 16000 block of Sierra Highway.

The original call went out to fire officials around 12:14 p.m.
