PALMDALE – A man was struck and killed by a vehicle in a hit-and-run crash early Saturday morning in Palmdale, authorities said.
It happened around 12:30 a.m. Saturday, April 6, on Sierra Highway just north of Avenue N, according to a news release from the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station.
“Deputies learned that one vehicle was traveling southbound on Sierra Highway north of Avenue N when that vehicle made a sudden lane change and struck a male black adult walking along the west shoulder of Sierra Highway. The male adult was transported by L.A. Co. Fire Department to Antelope Valley Hospital where he was later pronounced dead by hospital staff as a result of his injuries,” the news release states.
The vehicle involved fled the scene southbound on Sierra Highway immediately following the collision. Witnesses described the vehicle as an older dark sedan.
“Based on the preliminary investigation, it is probable that there is damage to the front right portion of the vehicle… Neither the driver nor the vehicle have been identified,” the news release states.
The victim’s identity has not yet been released pending next of kin notification.
Sierra Highway was closed between Avenue N and Avenue M during the collision scene investigation, which concluded at about 5 a.m. Saturday, April 6.

THIS IS WHY ALL ROADS SHOULD HAVE SIDEWALKS. So people aren’t forced to walk in the road. Drivers do need to be more careful though
Made a sudden lane change, hitting this poor soul, and leaving the scene? I wonder if this person purposely hit him.
It strikes me that in almost all of these new articles when the article states that the victim was transported to Antelope Valley Hospital. They always die. They make it to the hospital but they always die when they get there. What is up with that? Do they not have doctors at that hospital?
I think it is a case of many patients die on the way there but the call for the patient actually being deceased has to come from a doctor after the patient is in EMT/Paramedics care from the scene. (I could be incorrect)
No its Rex Parris fault.
Doc Rivers says
That’s wrong about Rex and its not his fault, period. You can bet he will chase the ambulance or take the claim. He is having a field day right here in the AV. Why change things?
Rex makes his money in all sorts of creative ways. Suing Monster energy drinks, suing American Legion Posts, and is newest gravy train, suing cities and school districts for voting districts that he won’t implement in his on city.
Plus all his business deals and LLCs with Frank and the gang. But his bread and butter are these crazy lawsuits.
I found out there are 2 brother attorneys in Rex and Rob and they are both involved in the same crazy lawsuits. I’ve heard Rob is the sneaky one and Rex is the nut.
Viet Vet says
You’re a bunch of old neurotic complainers that are too self-centered to drum up even an ounce of compassion for a dead person.
They’re both sneaky, but Rex is definitely nuttier. Way nuttier. Way way nuttier.
Mention Rob’s name in Santa Clarita and then run for the hills.

Faceless, anonymous online trolls that make the politicians in this valley look good.
The politicians in this valley are responsible for their poor reputations. Not all of them. You know the ones. The ones that think spending a million bucks a year on a spy plane will lower crime. The ones that bully people and organizations into doing what they want rather than what’s best. The ones who are puppets and tools the the machine.
The trolls? They’re telling it like it is. The pols hate it.
It would great if you guys can be respectful. This man was a father (who is my 6 year old little brother) and a wonderful man to my mom….so think before you leave random comments please.
Be respectful says
This article is about a man that lost his life, and as usual the self-centered comments coming from uncaring people show up continually.
Be respectful says
Doc Rivers and friends: You’re comments are worse than the person you’re talking about. Pushing your constant agenda even when someone has died.
It's Jerry Brown's fault says
Jerry Brown and DMV giving drivers license to idiots.

Hit-and-run of the day…
AV Illegal says
Well, proven once again:
1) Don’t walk along the shoulder of Sierra Highway
2) Don’t expect anyone in the valley to EVER stop and accept responsibility for ANYTHING
Face it. It just cost too much to take responsibility for anything anymore.
