One of our Facebook readers reported last night that a jogger had been struck and killed by a hit and run driver, at Raitt and Warner, at about 11 p.m. This has now been confirmed.
The Santa Ana Police Department received several calls of a male down in the roadway near the intersection of Raitt Street and St. Anne Place on May 18th, 2020 at approximately 11:02 p.m. That is just south of Valley High School and north of Adams Park.
The preliminary investigation has revealed the male, who was either walking or jogging, was in the roadway when he was struck by a vehicle driving north on Raitt Street.
The vehicle involved was possibly a white four-door sedan. The vehicle fled the scene prior to the arrival of police and fire personnel; the vehicle and driver remain unidentified. Investigators are still determining if alcohol played a role in this collision.
The police have not provided a description of the driver or the vehicle.
The Santa Ana Police Department’s Collision Investigation Unit (CIU) is handling the ongoing investigation. Anyone having information about this collision is asked to contact Investigator N. Quinones at (714) 245-8284
