Hit and run suspect to be charged


A motorist who allegedly fled the scene of a traffic collision that sent five people to the hospital on the night of July 4th last year is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.

Christian Zamora, 32, appeared for a preliminary hearing last week in San Fernando Superior Court after which a judge ordered him to stand trial.

After hearing the evidence presented by prosecutors at the prelim Feb. 22, the judge ordered Zamora to answer to both criminal counts filed against him, Sarah Ardalani, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office told The Signal.

Zamora is now scheduled to be formally charged, or arraigned, on two felony counts in case – hit and run driving resulting in injury to another person and driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage causing injury.

His arraignment is set to happen Wednesday.

Zamora was arrested about 10:45 p.m. on July 4, 2016.

Shortly before 10 p.m. that same day, five people were injured and rushed to the hospital in a two-car traffic collision in Valencia, Los Angeles County Fire Department Inspector Gustavo Medina said at the time.

The crash happened shortly before 10 p.m. on Magic Mountain Parkway at Tourney Road in Valencia.
