Los Angeles: Detectives at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Central Traffic Division are seeking the public’s assistance in locating the suspect responsible for a hit-and-run in Rampart Division.
On October 1, 2022, at around 9:50 p.m., a 22-year-old female Hispanic pedestrian was crossing the street at the intersection of 8th Street and Carondelet Street. A dark colored, possibly gray, Toyota Tacoma was travelling westbound on 8th Street when it struck the pedestrian, who was knocked down by the impact. The driver fled the scene without stopping to render aid and identify him or herself.
The Los Angeles Fire Department responded and transported the pedestrian to a local hospital. She was admitted into the Intensive Care Unit for her severe injuries.
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 that provide information leading to the offender’s identification, apprehension, and conviction or resolution through a civil compromise.
