Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Traffic Division are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect responsible for a hit-and-run traffic collision that killed a man.
On Saturday, July 2, 2022, at 2:17 a.m., a two-door white Nissan Altima (possibly 2010 to 2013) was traveling eastbound on Pico Boulevard when it crashed into the victim who was walking southbound within the marked crosswalk at Wilton Place. The victim, a 25-year-old female, succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead at scene by the Los Angeles Fire Department.
The driver of the two-door white Nissan Altima stopped briefly but eventually, fled the scene without identifying themselves and did not render aid to the victim, as required by law.
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. The public is also reminded that as pedestrians, they should exercise caution when crossing streets, obey traffic lights, cross within marked crosswalks, and obey the rules of the road.
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 $50,000 is available to community members that 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 West Traffic Division Detectives at (213) 473-0234 or (213) 473-0222. During non-business hours, or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (1-877-527-3247). Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call the L.A.
