December 26, 2022

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

On December 24, 2022, around 3:25 p.m., a female victim was parked in the area of South Broadway and 88th Street, dropping off toys to a local shelter with her children. As she returned to her vehicle, a blue mid-size sedan traveling northbound on South Broadway struck her and fled northbound on South Broadway, failing to stop or render aid.

LAFD responded and pronounced the victim deceased at scene.

The blue sedan sustained significant damage to the front passenger area. There is no suspect information.

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.

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.
