On 03/29/2023 at approximately 1:36PM , two juvenile pedestrians were crossing the roadway west from the east sidewalk of the 700 block of S. Birch Street. One of the juveniles was struck by a black older model Cadillac DeVille travelling southbound on Birch Street. The vehicle continued southbound and never stopped. The juvenile victim was transported to CHOC hospital with injuries.
Witnesses were only able to describe the suspect vehicle as a black older model Cadillac DeVille with dark tinted windows. Through comparison, investigators were able to narrow the vehicle down to an early 2000s black Cadillac DeVille with chrome rims and chrome metal trim.
Anyone with information on the identity of the driver or whereabouts of the vehicle is asked to contact Police Service Officer, S. Guzman of the Santa Ana Police Collision Investigations Unit (714) 245-8228 / Sguzman@santa-ana.org.
