Hit-and-run in Alhambra leaves skateboarder with fractured leg

Police are searching for a hit-and-run driver who struck a 17-year-old skateboarder Saturday night in Alhambra, leaving him with a fractured leg, the Pasadena Star-News reports.

The teenager was skateboarding near Alhambra Road and Marguerita Avenue when the driver of a silver Dodge Charger struck him around 10 p.m. and drove away, Lt. G Kennedy told the Star-News. Police are considering the possibility that the incident could have been intentional. Anyone with information is asked to call (626) 570-5157.

Saturday's incident was the second Alhambra collision involving a vehicle and a pedestrian in one week. Chin Mei Chen, 68, was killed on July 21 after a car struck her on Garfield Avenue and McLean Street. Chen was crossing Garfield in a crosswalk around 6:30 a.m. when she was struck by a driver turning onto Garfield from McLean, said Sgt. Jerry Johnson of the Alhambra Police Department. The 39-year-old driver remained at the scene and cooperated with police.
