The driver responsible for a fatal hit-and-run that happened Friday night in North Hollywood was arrested early Saturday morning when he returned to the scene of the crime. The LAPD say 21-year-old Adrian Diamond of Stevenson Ranch struck 76-year-old Earl Biggs of North Hollywood as he crossed Sherman Way at Coldwater Canyon. Diamond fled the scene, but came back at 2 a.m. and was taken into custody, and booked for felony hit-and-run. If Diamond had not left, say authorities, "it is possible that he would not be facing any charges." Biggs died a short time after the accident at the hospital.
