California Highway Patrol investigators on Monday were seeking two suspects in a hit-and-run accident that critically injured one truck driver who had stopped to aid another on the Santa Ana Freeway.
A CHP dispatcher said Monday that William Sutton, 38, of Downey, suffered a fractured skull and two broken legs when he was struck at 6:10 a.m. Saturday on the freeway near the Laguna Freeway exit.
Sutton had helped two passengers out of a truck that had jackknifed, according to investigators. He was still standing on the right shoulder of the freeway when a car traveling about 60 m.p.h. hit him.
The dispatcher said the two men in the car, who were described as Latinos, fled the car on foot. But a trace of the car's license plate number has not turned up any suspects, she said.
