Driver Arrested for Westley Hit and Run Fatality

A driver has been recently arrested for a Westley hit and run fatality that occurred on March 29, 2019. The motorist, a 34-year-old Whittier man, was driving a white Chevrolet Tahoe along Highway 33 near Cox Road shortly before 2:00 p.m. For unknown reasons, the Chevrolet veered into the oncoming traffic lane and forced another driver to lose control of his vehicle. This caused the other motorist to collide with a pole. The Whittier man reportedly never stopped to help the other driver and left him behind to succumb to his injuries at the scene. Fortunately, the Whittier man was later tracked down by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) with the assistance of U.S. Marshals in Southern California.
