Man Killed in Hit-And-Run Traffic Collision NR12103gb

Los Angeles: LAPD South Traffic detectives are asking for the public’s help in providing information about a hit and run traffic collision that left one man fatally injured in South Los Angeles.

On Wednesday, January 11, 2012, around 12:35 p.m., 22-year-old, Charles Frazier of Los Angeles was traveling south on Normandie Avenue, approaching Vernon Avenue  in a 1986 Chevy Camaro when he was struck from behind by a driver in a possible Chevy Monte Carlo or Impala that was also traveling south on Normandie Avenue.  The impact of the collision caused the driver in the Chevy Camaro to cross over the double yellow lines and veered into opposing traffic, colliding into an oncoming vehicle. Frazier was ejected from his car.

The male driver in the possible Monte Carlo/Impala continued south on Normandie Avenue, and fled from the scene without rendering aid or identifying himself.

Frazier was transported to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries. Investigators believe that the hit-and-run driver is an African-American male, 5 feet 11 inches to 6 feet one inch tall and weighs about 175-180 pounds. He was wearing a red bandana, black baseball hat and black shirt. The Chevy Monte Carlo or Chevy Impala was black or dark in color with large chrome rims.

Anyone with information about this crime is urged to call LAPD South Traffic Division Investigator K. Yount at 323-421-2500 or 323-421-2535. 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.
