Los Angeles:  On Sunday, December 2, 2012, at approximately 2:15 a.m., a double Hit and Run Traffic Collision occurred in the community of Reseda.  A dark gray sport utility vehicle (SUV) was traveling northbound on Reseda Boulevard when it collided with a pedestrian who was crossing eastbound on Reseda Boulevard, south of Bessemer Street.  While the pedestrian lay in the roadway motionless, he was struck by a second passenger vehicle.  The pedestrian, Thomas Robert Price, a 22-year-old resident of Reseda, died at a local hospital.  Both drivers sped away from the scene without stopping to render aid or to identify themselves.
