A 58-year-old homeless individual named Paul Sigler was hit and killed on Nov. 13 by a driver who immediately fled the scene.

The incident took place around 8 p.m. at the intersection of 10th St. and Pico Boulevard, according to SMPD Lt. Rudy Flores. Sigler was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street and then hit by a second car while he was down on the road. Santa Monica Fire personnel pronounced him dead on scene.

Police are seeking to track down a white Dodge Challenger with red racing stripes on the hood, which is suspected to be responsible for the hit and run. The vehicle was last seen traveling east on Pico Blvd following the incident.

The driver of the second vehicle that struck Sigler stopped to assist and has cooperated with the investigation.

The incident is still under investigation by SMPD’s Major Accident Response team, which is checking for surveillance footage and seeking to interview witnesses.

Members of the public with any information pertaining to the incident are encouraged to contact Investigator Evan Raleigh at 310-458-8954 or evan.raleigh@santamonica.gov, or the Watch Commander (24 hours) at 310-458-8461.

The police department is also continuing to investigate a separate hit and run incident that took place at 3rd St. and Wilshire Blvd on Oct. 31 at around 1 a.m. The victim was a pedestrian in the crosswalk at the intersection and survived the collision with serious bodily injury.

The suspect vehicle is believed to be an Infiniti G-series sedan, white in color, with no front plate and major damage to the windshield on the passenger’s side from this collision. Anyone with information about this incident is also encouraged to contact Raleigh or the Watch Commander.
