Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department’s Central Traffic Division detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect involved in a hit-and-run collision that injured a male pedestrian, a Los Angeles resident.
On March 14, 2022, at 8:40 p.m. a male Black pedestrian was crossing eastbound on Main Street, between Olympic Boulevard and 11th Street. As he was crossing northbound on Main Street, a dark colored, unknown make and model vehicle, struck him, and knocked him onto the street.
The pedestrian began to crawl towards the east sidewalk of Main Street when a dark colored, 4-door passenger vehicle ran over the pedestrian, and dragged him approximately 15-feet before being dislodged. Both vehicles failed to stop to render aid and identify themselves as required by law.
The Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded and transported the pedestrian to a local hospital in stable condition.
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.
We would like to remind everybody when involved in a traffic crash to stop and check on the other parties, make sure they are alright, call 9-1-1 if they need medical attention, and to exchange information. Don’t convert a traffic crash into a crime.
Video of the traffic crash is posted on the Central Traffic Division’s YouTube account, “LAPD Central Traffic” and on Twitter account “@LAPDCTD24.”
