Vanowen Street Vehicle Collision Kills Lexus Driver Nelson Castaneda

Canoga Park, CA (June 28, 2022) – On Tuesday, before 12:15 a.m., 20-year-old Nelson Castaneda, died in a hit-and-run crash on De Soto Avenue.

According to the investigators, a black southbound Dodge Ram ran a red light while traveling at speeds around 80 miles per hour.

The vehicle collided with a gold westbound Lexus IS 350 along Vanowen Street. 

Sadly, Nelson Castaneda, the Lexus driver, died at the scene.

Officers say Castaneda’s vehicle rolled over several times before slamming into a power pole, light pole, and city street sign. Castaneda was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident but the impact of the collision still ejected him.

Moreover, the suspect’s vehicle also rolled several times and the driver exited the vehicle, then walked southbound down De Soto Avenue.

Reports say the suspect is a male suspect in his 20s and wearing dark clothing.
