Sig-alert on Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Beach

“An alleged hit-and-run incident forces traffic to crawl in downtown Laguna”

LAGUNA BEACH – A SigAlert has been issued for southbound lanes on Pacific Coast Highway, after an apparent hit-and-run accident damaged three parked cars and injured a suspect near West Street, police said.

“The male white driver got out of the car and was last seen running away from the scene,” Sgt. Jason Kravetz said. “He was described as shirtless and possibly bleeding from the shoulder.”
Responding officers had yet to draft a detailed report, though Kravetz said he believed the suspect had been apprehended near West Street.

“The charges aren’t finalized, but it looks as if he will be charged with DUI and hit-and-run,” he said.

The suspect was taken to Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo for treatment of his injuries. No others were injured in the collision, reported at 3:01 p.m.
