According to Sgt. Mike Konecny of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, “witnesses saw the vehicle driving southbound on Sand Canyon at extremely high speeds just moments prior to the collision.”

Los Angeles County Fire Department paramedics pronounced Demott dead at the scene. His identity was confirmed by Coroner spokesman Ed Winter Wednesday morning.

The driver, whose name has not been released, was transported to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital in critical condition.

Anyone with information is asked to call Traffic Investigator Mike Shapiro at 661-255-1121, ext 5111.
