James Pack, 62, of Carmel, died in a hit-and-run crash on Highway 1 on Thursday morning in Monterey County.

Police are now searching for the suspect in a silver vehicle that hit the victim’s 1988 Volkswagen van near Aguajito Road around 3:40 p.m. on June 1st, according to KSBW Action News 8 and the California Highway Patrol.

The car’s impact caused the vintage Volkswagen van to overturn multiple times. The driver identified as James Pack suffered major injuries in the crash. Paramedics responded and rushed him to the hospital where he died soon afterwards.
