Pedestrian Struck and Killed by Two Hit and Run Drivers NR12288kr

Los Angeles:  A 66-year-old Los Angeles man was struck and killed by two hit and run drivers.

On June 17, 2012, around 1:50 a.m., the pedestrian was crossing outside the crosswalk on Central Avenue south of 42nd Place.  A silver Pontiac Grand AM with chrome rims traveling northbound Central Avenue struck the victim and left him lying in the roadway.

Minutes later a green Chevrolet Suburban with tinted windows (possible chrome rims), also traveling north on Central Avenue, ran over the victim as he lay in the street.  The victim was dragged nearly 200 feet under the Suburban.  The driver of the Suburban is believed to be a male Hispanic in his 20’s with glasses and spiky hair.  Detectives do not have a description of the Grand AM driver.

The victim’s name is being withheld until his family can be notified.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Central Traffic Division Detectives, Detective Jose De Leon or Detective Josephine Mapson at 213-972-1852. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (1-877-527-3247). Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers 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 www.lapdonline.org, and click on "Anonymous Web Tips.”
