Police sought the driver of a vehicle that struck a pedestrian while leaving the scene of a street takeover in Anaheim early Tuesday, May 26.
Dozens of people had assembled after midnight near Harbor Boulevard and Katella Avenue, where at least 15 vehicles were seen with their tires screeching as they skidded in circles through the intersection, Anaheim Police Sgt. Shane Carringer said. Authorities responded to break up the gathering, and a red coupe was seen in surveillance footage driving away from the scene as police approached.
Investigators believe the sports car struck a man who was standing in the street, then took off westbound on Katella, police said in a news release. The victim was taken to a hospital and treated for injuries that were described as moderate, and was expected to recover, Carringer said.
The vehicle involved in the collision may have been a Scion FR-S or Subaru BRZ, police said. It did not have a license plate displayed on its front bumper, but may have had one on its dashboard.
Police asked anyone who might be able to help them track down either the vehicle or motorist involved in the crash to call APD Traffic Investigator Poer at 714-765-1474.
No other injuries or collisions were reported in connection with the street takeover, Carringer said.
“This one was actually on the smaller side compared to what we have seen,” Carringer said of the illegal after hours gathering that preceded the crash. Similar events in Orange County and the illegal exhibitions of speed they feature have attracted hundreds of vehicles and people.
