Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s South Traffic Division are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect responsible for a severe hit-and-run traffic collision.
On Sunday, October 9, 2022, at 4:00 p.m., a white four-door Chevrolet sedan (possibly a Malibu or Impala) was traveling eastbound on L Street negotiating a left turn to go northbound on Figueroa Street. The vehicle struck a pedestrian who was crossing in a westbound direction on Figueroa Street. The force of the impact caused the pedestrian to go airborne and collide with the roadway. The white sedan continued northbound on Figueroa Street.
The Los Angeles Fire Department responded and transported the pedestrian to a local hospital with severe injuries.
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 $25,000 is available to community members who provide information leading to the offender’s identification, apprehension, and conviction or resolution through a civil compromise.
Anyone with information about this collision is asked to contact Officer Antonio Hurd, South Traffic Division, at 323-421-2500. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247). Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call CrimeStoppers at 800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).
