South Los Angeles Fatal Hit and Run

Los Angeles: The police department is seeking the public's help in identifying the driver of a car who fatally struck a man on Tuesday.

On December 19, 2006, at approximately 5:45 P.M., 62-year-old Leo Shorty Jr. was pushing a shopping cart at 81st Street and Main Street.

A driver travelling westbound on 81st Street struck Shorty walking in the unmarked crosswalk, fatally injuring him. The driver of the car failed to stop and render aid and identify him or herself as required by law.

Witnesses described the hit and run vehicle as a four door, 1999 Toyota Corolla, Chevy Malibu or Cadillac Seville, but were unable to provide a description of the driver.

The victim was taken to California Hospital where he died a short time later.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact South Traffic Division, Officer Grace Brady or Detective Rodney Jones at 323-290-6063. On weekends and during off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).
