Mother and Son Critically Injured by Hit & Run Driver NR11393cj

Los Angeles:  Detectives are asking for the public’s help in locating a hit and run driver who struck and critically injured a 45-year-old woman and her 17-year-old son as they were crossing the street.

On Sunday, August 21, 2011, at about 11:30 a.m., a motorist traveling northbound on Western Avenue hit two pedestrians walking westbound in the crosswalk at the intersection of 80th Street and Western Avenue. The driver failed to stop to render aid or identify themselves as required by law.  

LAFD rescue personnel responded to the scene and transported both victims to a local hospital where they are in critical condition.

The driver is described as a female African American in her mid fifties, about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing about 160 pounds.  She was driving a dark late model car described as a possible Toyota, and would likely have sustained right front end damage and be missing the right side mirror.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call LAPD South Traffic Division Detective Martin or Officer Brady at 323-421-2500.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
