A possible-hit-and run accident had deadly consequences for one man and also left several others injured. California police are still investigating the car accident and are in the process of searching for the driver believed to have caused the initial collision. However, it is still not clear what vehicle the driver was using before fleeing the scene.
At shortly past 3:30 in the morning, a 55-year-old man was traveling in the southbound lanes of the 605 Freeway when, for reasons that are unclear, he was struck by another vehicle. Authorities currently believe that vehicle performed a hit-and-run, but that was not the end of the accident. The man who had initially been struck lost control of his vehicle in the collision and veered across the center line of traffic. When his vehicle finally stopped moving, he was in the northbound lanes facing oncoming traffic.
