Victim Severely Injured by Hit-and-Run Driver NR14260nv

Los Angeles:  Los Angeles Police Department Central Traffic Division detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify the driver who struck 71-year-old Fernando Valdivia, a resident of South Gate and then drove away from the scene.

On June 28, 2014, around 12:15 p.m., Valdivia was standing near the gas pump island of the Mobil gas station located in the 200 block of West Slauson Avenue, when he was struck by red Chevy pick-up.  The driver stopped briefly then left the scene without identifying himself or rendering aid to the victim as mandated by law.



According to witnesses, the hit-and-run vehicle was described as a red 2000-2005 red Chevy Silverado pickup truck, with an extended cab.  The driver is described as a male Hispanic between 30 and 40-years-old.  He stands 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighs about 170 pounds with black hair.

Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to the location and transported the victim to a local hospital for emergency medical treatment.

Anyone with information about this collision is asked to contact Central Traffic Division Detectives at (213) 833-3713 or Detective Felix Padilla at (213) 486-0753.  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.
