Man Struck and Killed by Hit & Run Driver NR12426rh

Los Angeles:   West Traffic Detectives are asking for the public’s help to locate and identify the driver of a Chrysler Sebring who struck and killed a man who was standing on the sidewalk.

On Monday, September 10, 2012, at 5:10 a.m., a driver in a 2010 Chrysler Sebring travelling north on Western Avenue lost control of the vehicle, ran off the road and struck 63-year-old Amos Romasoc, a Los Angeles resident, who was standing on the west sidewalk of Western Avenue just south of Romaine Street. The driver failed to stop to render aid or identify himself as required by law.

Witnesses observed the suspect and his passenger exit the vehicle and flee westbound on Romaine Street.  The suspects removed their shirts and ran into an apartment building located in the 5640 block of Santa Monica Boulevard.  Approximately, 25 minutes later, the suspects left the location and entered a blue Mazda and left in an unknown direction.

Los Angeles Fire Department personnel responded to the location and pronounced Romasoc dead at scene.

The driver is described as a male White, 20-30-years-old, stands 5 feet 10 inches, and weighs about 140-150 pounds.

The passenger is described as a male Black, 20-30-years-old.

The vehicle is described as a 2010 Chrysler Sebring, California License plate No. 6LUP437.

The other vehicle is described as a blue Mazda, California License plate No. 6UGC050.

Detectives from West Traffic Division are asking anyone who may have information about this incident to call Officer Hutchings at 213-473-0234.  During weekends and off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAPD24-7 (1-877-527-3247). 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.
