A 16-year-old high school student was killed while he jogged on Woodman Avenue in Sherman Oaks yesterday afternoon. Conor Lynch was struck while attempting to cross the street by a burgundy 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV traveling northbound, reports the LAPD. The vehicle's driver, 18-year-old Moran Biton of Sherman Oaks, did not stop, and continued on for several blocks until stopped by the authorities. Biton has been arrested and booked into Van Nuys jail. Lynch was pronounced dead at the scene. The LAPD say that preliminary investigation show that drugs or alcohol were not a factor in the fatal accident.
