The California Highway Patrol has identified the man they are looking for in connection with a deadly hit and run crash on Highway 154 on Friday.

The crash happened at about 10:45 pm at the intersection of Highway 246.

The CHP says Joseph Corcoran, 33, of Santa Cruz, was riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle when a car turned in front of him, causing a head-on crash. Corcoran died at the scene.

The CHP says the driver of that car was Luis Diaz, 28, of Ventura. They say he ran from the scene and is still on the loose.

Investigators say Diaz also goes by the name of Jose Morales. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call the Buellton Area CHP Office at (805) 688-5551.
