April 22, 2022

Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s South Traffic Division
are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect responsible for a hit-and-run traffic collision that killed a man.

On April 22, 2022, around 2:34 a.m., a vehicle was traveling southbound Grandee Avenue near 103rd Street when it collided with the pedestrian who was walking in the roadway. The driver of the vehicle failed to stop and render aid or remain at scene after the collision, fleeing southbound Grandee Ave. The Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded and pronounced the victim dead at scene.

The vehicle is described as a white colored, early model sedan with tinted windows.

The victim’s identity is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

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.
