CHP looking for driver involved in fatal hit and run accident Friday night

The California Highway Patrol says the driver of a car involved in a fatal collision Friday night is still at large. It happened around 10:45 p.m. Friday night at the intersection of State Route 246 and State Route 154, in the Santa Ynez Valley area. According to CHP officers, a person was riding a black 2002 Harley Davidson Motorcycle on the eastbound side of the 154, approaching the 246. A person driving a white 1998 Toyota Camry was travelling on the westbound side of the 154, getting ready to make a left hand turn onto the 246. For some reason, the driver of the Camry started making the turn directly in front of the motorcyclist, causing a head on collision. The motorcyclist had major injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. CHP officers say the motorcyclist was a 33-year-old man from Santa Cruz. They haven't released his name. CHP officers say whoever was in the Camry ran away from the scene and left the Camry in the shoulder of State Route 246. K-9 units and officers searched the surrounding area, but they weren't able to find anyone. If you have any information on this accident, call the California Highway Patrol at (805) 593-3333 ext. 0.
