Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Traffic Division are investigating a fatal hit-and-run collision that killed a 24-year-old female.
On November 14, 2023, around 10:00 p.m., the suspect vehicle, described as a black 2015 or newer, 4-door Infiniti with tinted windows, was traveling at a high rate of speed southbound on Arlington Avenue when it collided with a 25-year-old male pedestrian and 24-year-old female pedestrian who were crossing the street eastbound on Arlington Avenue, north of Venice Boulevard. The driver of the vehicle fled southbound on Arlington Avenue without stopping, identifying themselves or rendering aid.
Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded and pronounced the female pedestrian deceased at-scene. Her identity is being withheld pending next-of-kin notification. The male pedestrian was unharmed.
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.
