Los Angeles:  Detectives are asking for the public’s help in locating a hit and run driver who struck and fatally injured a 77-year-old woman.

Witnesses found Yoo lying in the street with a severe head injury.  Yoo was transported to a local area hospital where she died of her injures.

There is currently no description of the hit and run driver or vehicle at this time.
