Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department’s South Traffic Division detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying a driver involved in a hit-and-run collision that injured a 14-year-old boy.

On February 2, 2024, around 6:55 a.m., a silver or grey 4-door SUV (possibly a Honda Element or Pilot) was traveling northbound on Ursula Avenue when the vehicle struck the juvenile, who was riding his skateboard northbound on Ursula Avenue.

The vehicle failed to stop, render aid, and remain at scene as required by law. The vehicle was last seen northbound on Ursula Avenue.

The Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and treated the victim for pain to his hand and elbow. His name is being withheld pending a criminal investigation.
