A Van Nuys man is left in critical condition after a hit and run early Sunday morning.

SHERMAN OAKS—Officials are looking for the driver of a hit-and-run that left one pedestrian in critical condition.


At 1:45 a.m. on Sunday, August 18, a parking valet was opening the door for the owner of a Ford Focus when a vehicle, described as a silver Hyundai sedan, collided with the open door. The driver of the Hyundai did not stop to check on the victim and sped away westbound on Ventura Boulevard.


The parking valet was not injured; however, the owner of the Ford Focus, a 22-year-old resident of Van Nuys, sustained serious injuries and remains in critical condition. Anyone with information is asked to contact Valley Traffic Division Officer Martinez at (818) 644-8032 or Officer Fredo at (818) 644-8037.
