On March 16, 2015, around 8:00 a.m., an 87-year-old woman was crossing the street eastbound on Adams Boulevard within a marked crosswalk. The suspect, seen driving a silver colored late model Infinity SUV, (possibly QX or FX), drove eastbound on Adams Boulevard then turned northbound onto Figueroa Street. The suspect collided with the pedestrian and continued northbound on Figueroa Street. After driving approximately one block north, the suspect made a U-turn and drove past the victim in the southbound lanes. He continued to drive around the University of Southern California (USC) Campus at a high rate of speed and, on one occasion, drove through a red light.
