Hit-and-Run Suspect fleeing
Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department Central Traffic Division detectives are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a motorcyclist who struck and injured a child.
On March 30, 2023, at 3:30 p.m., a 13-year-old male pedestrian was crossing Whittier Boulevard, at Orme Avenue, within a marked crosswalk. A motorcycle traveling eastbound on Whittier Boulevard, collided with the pedestrian, and caused the pedestrian to fall to the ground. The suspect lost control of the motorcycle, fell to the ground, and slid approximately 80 feet before stopping. The suspect remounted his motorcycle, and fled the scene eastbound on Whittier Boulevard, failing to stop and identify himself or render aid as required by law.
The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the scene, transported the child to a local hospital, and admitted him for severe injuries. He is currently in critical condition.
The suspect is described only as male. The motorcycle is described as black, with damage that occurred during the collision.
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 that provide information leading to the offender’s identification, apprehension, and conviction or resolution through a civil compromise.
