A 69-year-old man was killed in a South Los Angeles pedestrian accident, which officials said, involved a suspected hit-and-run driver. According to a KABC news report, a vehicle was going south on Broadway early morning on February 11, 2017 when it struck a man who was crossing westbound in a marked crosswalk at 49th Street. Los Angeles fire officials responded to the scene and transported the injured pedestrian to an area hospital where he died from his injuries.
The driver did not stop and render aid as required by the law, police said. They are looking for the hit-and-run driver. A surveillance camera at a nearby business captured the fatal crash, but investigators have not yet released a description of the suspect’s vehicle. Anyone who witnessed the crash or has more information is asked to contact LAPD’s Central Traffic Division at 213-833-3713.
Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family members and friends of the deceased victim for their tragic loss. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
