A pedestrian was struck by a vehicle during an altercation Friday morning on 15th Street and Railroad Avenue in Newhall, according to witnesses and Los Angeles County Fire Department officials. No injuries occurred.
Firefighters were dispatched at 10:59 a.m. Fire Department spokesman Esteban Benitez confirmed they were on the scene as of 11:15 a.m.
The altercation apparently broke out between two coworkers and resulted in one striking the other with his vehicle. The man who was struck says he did not personally know this coworker.
The victim of the alleged hit-and-run said his co-worker told him that he was looking at him in the wrong way, which prompted the man to get in his car and try to run the victim over. The man then reportedly fled the scene.
Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies on the scene confirmed it was a vehicle versus pedestrian incident and that no one was transported to the hospital.
Firefighters left the scene at 11:24 a.m.
