Van Nuys: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Valley Traffic Division are seeking any information for a hit and run traffic collision that caused severe injuries to two motorists in a multi-vehicle collision.
On December 13, 2021, around 9:45 p.m., a 2014 Hyundai SUV was traveling eastbound on Sherman Way at a high rate of speed when it ran a red light at Balboa Blvd. The Hyundai collided with a Silver Honda CRV that was traveling southbound Balboa Blvd. The force of this collision caused another two vehicles to be hit as a result of the initial collision. Those two vehicles were a Silver Toyota Tundra and a Yellow Honda Fit that were stopped eastbound Sherman Way at Balboa Blvd. The driver of the Hyundai described as a female, left her vehicle at scene and took off on foot without providing her information or rendering aid to any of the victims. She was last seen fleeing westbound Sherman Way.
The Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and transported the two occupants from the Honda CRV to a local hospital where they remain in serious condition. The drivers of the Tundra and Fit stayed at scene and sustained minor 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.
