Driver runs after crashing possibly stolen car in Monrovia

MONROVIA — Police sought a man early Thursday who crashed a possibly stolen car, then ran away.
The man crashed a Honda Accord into a parked Toyota Corolla about 8:10 a.m. in the 200 block of West Hillcrest Boulevard, Monrovia police Lt. Nells Ortlund said.
Both airbags in the Honda deployed in the crash, which pushed the Toyota into the middle of the street, the lieutenant said.
The driver abandoned the Honda at the scene of the crash and ran, Ortlund said. Witnesses reported seeing him headed west on Hillcrest Boulevard. He was described as a black man wearing a white T-shirt and dark-colored pants.
Police were looking into the possibility the Honda was stolen, Ortlund said. The process was slowed by DMV information indicating the car had been sold several times recently.
