A white, three-axle semi truck was the vehicle that struck a man in Pomona, killing him, as he crossed a street, police said Tuesday, releasing a photo of the suspect vehicle.
Officers were called about 6:15 a.m. Monday to Mission Boulevard and Reservoir Street, where they found a man “suffering from severe injuries,” the Pomona Police Department said in a statement.
The man died at the scene. His name was withheld, pending notification of his relatives.
Video of the suspect vehicle obtained by police showed it was a semi truck pulling a flat-bed trailer, the department said. The truck likely has damage to its front.
The driver, who fled the scene before authorities arrived, has not been identified by police.
Anyone with information on the case was urged to call police at 909-802-7741 or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
