According to detectives, the suspect’s car was a 4-door, white Toyota Camry and believed to have a damaged windshield on the right side.  The driver was a possible male Korean, and he might have taken the Camry for repair.


Los Angeles: On May 17, 2010, at around 11:30 p.m., a fatal hit-and run traffic incident occurred in the Korea Town area when a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle while walking northbound on Olympic Boulevard east of Manhattan Place.  

A suspect driving an unknown white sedan traveling westbound on Olympic Boulevard hit a 61-year-old Black female pedestrian and continued driving.  The impact proved to be fatal, and the driver failed to stop and render aid as required by law.
 
The victim was identified by a coroner's investigator; however, her identity will not be released until her family has been notified.

Anyone who may have additional information about this hit-and-run collision is urged to contact West Traffic Division, Detective Stephanie Banks at 213-473-0227.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Those who wish to remain anonymous may 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) using a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters can also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on “web tips” and follow the prompts.
