Bryan Bogan has been identified by authorities as the deceased victim in an alleged hit-and-run DUI collision pedestrian that occurred on March 24 in Long Beach. Another man was also seriously injured. Mr. Bogan, a 61-year-old local resident and another man, a 70-year-old Torrance resident, were working with towing equipment on Del Amo Boulevad before 12:40 p.m. between their two cars, a Honda Accord and a Mercedes Benz E320, both older models from the 1990s. Authorities allege that Charlette Colton, a 50-year-old resident of Lakewood, rear-ended the Honda in an older model Dodge Caravan, causing it to strike the two men. The woman allegedly fled the scene on foot but was eventually located . Mr. Bogan and the other man were hospitalized but Mr. Bogan tragically died from his injuries on April 4th. Ms. Colton faces multiple criminal charges relating to both DUI and hit-and-run. Now that Mr. Bogan is dead, the charges against her are expected to become more severe.
We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the deceased during this difficult time. Our thoughts also go out to the injured gentleman.
