West Covina man suspected of driving on PCP following hit-and-run crash

WEST COVINA — A West Covina man is believed to have been high on PCP when he fled the scene of a minor traffic collision late Saturday, authorities said.
Morgan Hernandez, 42, was booked on suspicion of hit-and-run, driving under the influence of PCP and possession of PCP following the 9:-04 p.m. crash at
Osborne and Eckerman avenues, West Covina police Lt. Dennis Patton said.
A woman reported Hernandez had crashed into her vehicle with his own and driven off, the lieutenant said. She was not hurt.
Officers found Hernandez and his car a short time later nearby at Vincent and Puente avenues, Patton said.
“The suspect displayed symptoms consistent with PCP intoxication,” he said. A small vial containing suspected PCP was also recovered.
According to Los Angeles County booking records, Hernandez remained jailed Sunday in lieu of $25,000 bail at the West Covina Police Department’s jail. He was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in West Covina Superior Court.
