Los Angeles:
  A child was struck and killed by a hit and run driver as he crossed a busy street in South Los Angeles.

On Thursday, July 15, 2010, at about 2:30 p.m., Natanael Garcia was walking in a marked crosswalk at 76th Street and Hoover Street.  A driver travelling eastbound 76th Street made a left turn, to northbound Hoover Street, and hit Garcia.  The driver stopped momentarily, but quickly drove off northbound Hoover Street, failing to render aid or identify herself as is required by law.

The driver is described as a female, Hispanic, with a long pony tail.  She was driving a black or dark blue, large sports utility vehicle, with tan trim around the bottom, and stock wheels.  

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact South Traffic Division Detectives at 323-290-6063.   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.
