Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Traffic Division are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect responsible for a hit-and-run traffic collision that killed a woman.
On Saturday, July 2, 2022, around 2:20 a.m., a white Nissan sedan traveling eastbound on Pico Boulevard collided with a female pedestrian crossing the street at the intersection of Pico Boulevard and Wilton Place. The sedan stopped following the collision, and a male driver exited the vehicle momentarily. The driver re-entered the vehicle and fled the scene eastbound on Pico Boulevard, failing to identify himself or render aid to the pedestrian.
The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the scene and pronounced the pedestrian dead at scene.
Drivers are reminded to obey all traffic. If involved in a traffic collision, drivers are reminded to pull over and stop as soon as it is safe to do so, notify emergency services, and remain at the scene to identify themselves.
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.
