Roy Carrillo has been identified by authorities as the victim in an apparent hit-and-run pedestrian collision that occurred in Pacoima on October 19.  Mr. Carrillo, a 61-year-old Sylmar resident, was attempting to cross at the intersection of San Fernando Road and Truesdale Avenue about 10 minutes before midnight when he was struck by an auto described as a black Lexus, which apparently left the scene. First-responders took the victim to an area hospital where he passed away from his injuries. Witnesses are being sought.

We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the victim during this difficult time.
