ANAHEIM (CNS) - California Highway Patrol officials today asked for the public's help tracking down a hit-and-run driver who killed a pedestrian early Saturday.
The victim -- 30-year-old Rick Dale Moore of Long Beach -- was walking south on Magnolia Street in a marked crosswalk at Katella Avenue when he was struck by a pickup truck speeding east on Katella, according to CHP Officer Mitch Smith.
Moore was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators suspect the pickup is a late-model vehicle that is dark- colored and is possibly a Chevrolet, which would likely have noticeable front- end damage, Smith said.
Anyone who saw the collision or has any other relevant information was asked to call police at 714-892-4426.
