Ventura Police say they’ve identified one of the two drivers involved in a fatal hit and run crash which left a 14 year old boy dead, and also have more information about the accident.

The boy was struck and killed just after 12 a.m. Friday at the intersection of Saticoy Avenue and Telegraph Road.  Police say he was hit by a tow truck, and an SUV.  Police now say that on Friday night, the owner of the tow truck contacted police, and turned over the vehicle to investigators.  The driver of the SUV is still being sought.

Ventura Police traffic investigators say it appears the boy rode his bicycle into the path of the oncoming tow truck, which had a green light on Telegraph Road.  There’s no word yet on possible charges stemming from the accident.
