A pedestrian was fatally injured in a hit-and-run crash early Saturday, July 4, in the 2400 block of South Fairview Street in Santa Ana, police said.
Around 1:20 a.m., police responding to several calls found the man in the road with major injuries, a Santa Ana Police Department news release said. The investigation found that a vehicle driving south on Fairview struck the man and then left the scene with a shattered windshield.
Officers found the vehicle and traced it to a nearby home, where they arrested Santa Ana resident Jonathan Padilla, 20, on suspicion of felony hit-and-run. Orange County Fire Authority paramedics treated the injured man but he died at the scene, the news release said. Police are still investigating the collision.
