The suspect is accused of driving a stolen 2006 Saturn Ion when the vehicle crashed into a 1998 Toyota truck near the intersection of Glendale Boulevard and Scott Avenue around 7:10 a.m. on Nov. 9.

Following the crash, the suspect did not stop to help. Instead, he got out of the stolen vehicle and walked away from the scene, LAPD investigators said.

The two people inside the Toyota suffered minor injuries.
