November 27, 2021

Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Traffic Division are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect involved in a hit-and-run traffic collision that killed a 23-year-old man.

On November 26, 2021 around 7:30 P.M., a pedestrian was crossing southbound Harvard Boulevard at the intersection of Venice Boulevard in a marked crosswalk. As the pedestrian crossed southbound Harvard Boulevard, he was hit by a dark color 2014 to 2019 BMW sedan going eastbound Venice Boulevard.

The driver of the BMW failed to stop, identify themselves, and/or render aid at the scene of a traffic collision as required by law.

The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the scene and despite lifesaving efforts, the pedestrian died at the scene.

Identity of the victim will not be release until identified as a 23-year-old male from Los Angeles.

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.
