Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s South Traffic Division are investigating a fatal hit-and-run collision that left a pedestrian dead.
On November 14, 2023, around 9:35 p.m., a vehicle traveling southbound Normandie Avenue collided with a pedestrian in the roadway just north of Knox Street. The driver of the vehicle fled southbound Normandie Avenue without stopping, identifying themselves or rendering aid. Two minutes later another vehicle traveling southbound on Normandie Avenue struck the pedestrian who was now lying in the roadway due to the first collision. The second vehicle also fled southbound Normandie Avenue.
Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded and pronounced the pedestrian deceased at-scene. His identity is being withheld pending next-of-kin notification.
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.
