February 13, 2024

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department’s South Traffic Division detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying multiple drivers involved in a fatal hit-and-run collision that killed a man in his 30’s.

On November 14, 2023, around 9:35 p.m., a silver or gray 4-door pickup truck was traveling southbound Normandie Avenue when the vehicle struck a pedestrian who was walking northbound Normandie Avenue. The vehicle continued southbound Normandie Avenue and made a left turn onto 204th Street. The force of the collision caused the pedestrian to fall into the southbound lanes of Normandie Avenue where he was struck by a second vehicle, also traveling southbound Normandie Avenue. The second vehicle is described as a black 4-door sedan which continued southbound Normandie Avenue towards Torrance Boulevard. Both vehicles failed to stop, render aid, and remain at scene as required by law.

The Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and pronounced the pedestrian dead at scene. His name is being withheld pending a criminal investigation.

Drivers are reminded that if they become involved in a collision, they should pull over and stop as soon as it is safe to do so, notify emergency services, and remain at the scene to identify themselves.

The public is also reminded that as pedestrians, they should exercise caution when crossing streets, obey traffic lights, cross within marked crosswalks, and obey the rules of the road.

On April 15, 2015, the City Council amended the Los Angeles Administrative Code and created a Hit-and-Run Reward Program Trust Fund. A reward of up to $50,000 is available to community members that provide information leading to the offender’s identification, apprehension, and conviction or resolution through a civil compromise.

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 the L.A.
