Los Angeles police investigate a fatal hit-and-run crash near the intersection of De Soto Avenue and Saticoy Street in Canoga Park on Saturday, Aug. 14, 2015.

A motorcyclist was killed and his passenger critically injured following a hit-and-run crash in Canoga Park early Saturday.

The collision at the intersection of De Soto Avenue and Saticoy Street was reported at about 3:40 a.m., the Los Angeles Police Department's Valley Traffic Division said.

A dark-colored truck, possibly a Ford or Toyota, collided with the motorcycle. The man, identified as 57-year-old Acton resident Keith Dumoif, was pronounced dead at the scene and his female passenger was transported to Northridge Hospital in critical condition.

On Saturday morning, police said they were questioning a person of interest in connection to the crash. The person of interest was later booked for felony vehicular manslaughter and felony hit-and-run. He's being held in lieu of $180,000.
