Early Morning Hit and Run Claims Woman's Life (UPDATE)

Los Angeles: The police department is seeking the public's help in identifying the driver of a car that killed a 22-year-old woman.

On March 18, 2006, at about 2 AM, a hit and run felony traffic collision occurred at Wilshire Boulevard and Ridgeley Drive. The woman was crossing southbound from the north curb of Wilshire Boulevard in a marked crosswalk when she was struck by a car traveling east on Wilshire Boulevard. The driver of the car did not stop and continued eastbound on Wilshire Boulevard. The car was last seen making a left turn at Burnside Avenue.

The woman was taken to Cedar Sinai Hospital for emergency medical treatment. Unfortunately she died from her injuries four and a half-hours later.

The woman has been identified as Corinne McClane, a resident of Northridge.

The car was described as a 2002-2005 Jeep Cherokee, black in color.

The Los Angeles Police Department’s West Traffic Division Detectives are asking the public's assistance in identifying the driver.
