Placentia police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a pedestrian hit by a vehicle this weekend who is clinging to life.
The man was struck by a vehicle and dragged Saturday, Placentia police Lt. Eric Point said. Police responded to a call about the injured victim at about 3:30 a.m. in the 1100 block of South Richfield Road, Point said. He was found in the southbound lanes.
A motorist approached police at the collision scene later and said he may have been involved, Point said. The cause of the accident was still under investigation Monday and no one has been arrested or cited.
The victim is Asian or possibly Latino and in his mid 20s, Point said. He is about 5-foot-6 and has a thin build and dark, medium-length hair.
He was wearing a maroon pullover, gray shirt, black jeans and gray-and- white, lace-up shoes, Point said.
The victim did not have any identification on him and has not been able to speak to investigators due to his injuries, Point said.
Anyone with information was asked to call investigators at (714) 993-8157.
