Transient Killed in Car Accident, Driver Flees Scene

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police detectives are requesting the public's help in identifying a transient who was struck and killed by a car Sunday evening in the San Fernando Valley. The vehicle's driver, who left the scene without stopping, is being sought.

On October 29, 2006, around 8:05 p.m., officers from Valley Traffic Division responded to a vehicle-versus-pedestrian traffic collision at the intersection of De Soto Avenue and Vanowen Street, in Winnetka. When police arrived, they found a transient who had been struck by a car. The victim, a male Hispanic in his 50s, was hit while crossing Vanowen Street mid-block.

The man was transported by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics to Northridge Hospital, where he died from his injuries. Witnesses stated that he was known to frequent the area of De Soto and Vanowen.

One witness to the accident saw the driver of a 2003 white Toyota Celica accelerate after impact, negotiate a quick right turn at the intersection and disappear. The driver is wanted for Felony Hit and Run. The vehicle was later located in the 6700 block of Cozycroft Avenue. Attempts to contact the registered owner have not been successful.

Anyone with information is asked to phone Valley Traffic Division Detective Schiltz or Mann at 818-374-1930, during normal business hours. On weekends and during off-hours, call the Valley Traffic Watch Commander at 818-756-8381.

Callers may remain anonymous.
