Pedestrian killed in Corona hit-and-run

A man was killed in a hit-and-run collision in Corona late Saturday night.

Police were called to the 800 block of Avenida del Vista in Corona around 11:44 p.m.

They found a man suffering from major trauma and brought him to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Investigators say the man was crossing the street when a vehicle heading northbound collided with him. The driver kept going without stopping to help, but then abandoned the vehicle in a nearby parking lot, where the driver and a passenger ran off on foot.

Investigators seized the vehicle and are working to identify the driver and passenger.

The name of the victim has not been released.
