Authorities looking for driver of dark-colored 1999 GMC pickup truck after hit-and-run motorcycle-vs-vehicle accident

According to an article from ABC7, there was a motorcyclist who was killed in a hit-and-run collision with a pickup truck on Saturday night at the intersection of Osborne Street and Norris Avenue.

As mentioned by the article, the crash occurred at about 7:00 p.m. on Saturday in Pacoima when the motorcyclist was heading eastbound on Osborne Street.  The suspect, described as a man in his 30’s with tattoos on his neck and body, turned left at a stop sign and directly into the path of the motorcyclist.

As a result, the motorcyclist was ejected from his bike and into the middle of the road.  When authorities arrived, they found the victim, a man in his 20’s, on the ground.  Paramedics transported the victim to a hospital where he shortly died after.  Currently, the victim’s name has not been released, pending the notification of next-of-kin.

Furthermore, authorities stated the suspect fled the scene of the accident after the crash.  Sources believe that the suspect was driving a dark-colored 1999 GMC pickup truck, with significant damage to the driver’s side.

Currently, this crash remains under investigation as authorities work to determine the exact cause and liable party in the crash.
