Police are searching for the driver of a car wanted in a fatal hit-and-run accident early Saturday morning in Santa Ana.

According to the SAPD, the crash occurred after 2 a.m. in the intersection of Main and 14th streets. Arriving officers found that one vehicle – a 2005 Chevrolet Colorado truck – was overturned and the driver had been trapped within and succumbed to his injuries.

The second vehicle – a 2021 Dodge Charger – was left unoccupied.

Upon further investigation, it was determined that the Charger had been moving northbound on Main Street “at a high rate of speed” and struck the Colorado at 14th Street.

After the crash, the Charger’s driver and his passenger fled the scene, with the driver spotted entering a red “SUV-type” vehicle. He’s described as a male Hispanic about 30 to 35 years old, 5-feet, 6-inches tall and about 200 lbs.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Investigator Bao at (714) 245-8217.
