Last month, a Sherman Oaks man was arrested in connection with a hit-and-run crash that killed a man in Van Nuys. The 60-year-old was arrested after fleeing the scene of the accident. He was followed by a witness to the crash and was finally taken into custody after crashing into several parked cars just north of the fatal crash.
