Party Bus Owner in Norwalk Hit and Run Identified

The owner of a party bus that was involved in a hit and run accident in Norwalk on Saturday at about 2:30 a.m. has been identified.

The accident left pedestrian Efren Virgen, a 26-year-old father of two young daughters (ages 2 and 7) with catastrophic injuries. Virgen was walking home on Fairford Ave., south of Ratliffe St., when he was hit. He was coming from a bar. The party bus dragged him over 200 feet.

According to Virgen's brother, the victim is no longer in a medically induced coma and can now breathe on his own. On Wednesday he is scheduled to undergo surgery for a crushed pelvis.

Sheriff's deputies were able to identify the owner of the party bus based on leads from the public. The bus involved was a black 1998 Ford E-450 which is registered to a Pico Rivera resident. The owner is said to be cooperating with poilce. The bus has been impounded as evidence.

A video surveillance camera at the Rock of the Nations Church captured images of the party bus driving by. The video showed a vehicle driving south, then do a U-turn and slowly drive back up the street.
