Hit and Run Collision Claims Life of 72 Year Old Female

LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENT
PRESS RELEASE
Saturday, August 26, 2000



"Hit and Run Collision Claims Life of 72 Year Old Female"

Los Angeles - On Friday, August 25, 2000, at approximately 10:35 P.M., a hit and run traffic collision occurred at the intersection of Sepulveda Boulevard and Manchester Avenue. A 1996 Honda Accord, was proceeding north on Sepulveda Boulevard turning left onto Manchester Avenue when it was struck on the passenger side by a southbound 2000 GMC Jimmy truck. The Honda was pushed toward the southwest corner of the intersection where it struck a 1992 Mazda pickup truck, which was waiting to turn right onto southbound Sepulveda Boulevard from eastbound Manchester Avenue.

After the collision, the driver of the GMC Jimmy, described as a 30 to 35 year old white male, 5' 10" tall with medium blond hair (long enough to put in a pony tail), and his passenger, described as a 20 to 25 year old white female with long black hair, were seen attempting to blend in with the crowd that had gathered at the scene, then ultimately walking from the scene, southbound on Sepulveda Boulevard. As they left the scene, witnesses noted that the female was walking with a limp. They did not identify themselves or attempt to render aid to the injured persons prior to leaving the scene.

A passenger in the Honda Accord, later identified as 72-year-old Eleanor Ehret was transported by ambulance to UCLA Medical Center where she expired from her injuries. The driver was also transported by ambulance to UCLA Medical Center where he was treated for lacerations to his forehead, right hand, and ear.

The investigation is being conducted by West Traffic Division Detectives and anyone with information can contact Officer D. Kemble at 213-473-0227.

This press release was prepared by Officer Guillermo Campos, Media Relations Section. Any questions regarding this information, please call 213-485-3586.
