SANTA ANA (CBSLA) — Police released surveillance video Thursday of a vehicle they say struck and killed a man in Santa Ana, then took off.
Several people reported seeing a man with major injuries in the intersection of Harbor Boulevard and McFadden Avenue at about 9:20 p.m. last Friday. The man was pronounced dead on the scene.
