Los Angeles:   The hit and run suspect who hit and caused serious injuries to a 51-year-old woman walking along a sidewalk Sunday evening has been arrested.

On March, 4, 2012, at around 7:50 p.m., a driver, (later identified as 21-year-old Jose Miguel Gaeta of Huntington Park), hit a pedestrian walking on Central Avenue between 52nd Street and 53rd Street.  The victim was a 51-year-old woman from Los Angeles who sustained serious injuries from the collision, including multiple fractures.

Gaeta was driving a 2003 grey Toyota-Tundra with tinted windows.  He failed to stop and render aid to the victim and identify himself as required by law.

On March 6, 2012, at around 5:15 p.m., Gaeta was taken into custody in the 7000 block of Miles Street in Huntington Park.  He was booked for Felony Hit and Run and is being held on $50,000 bail.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Central Traffic Detectives, Detective Josephine Mapson or Detective Jose De Leon at (213) 972-1840.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (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 LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
