Felony Hit and Run Caught on Video NR19026ml

Boyle Heights: The Los Angeles Police Department's Central Traffic Division are asking for the public's help in providing any information that would lead to the identification and arrest of the suspect involved in a felony hit and run collision that struck a pedestrian.

On January 30, 2019, at approximately 7:20 AM, a pedestrian was crossing the street, from the northeast corner of 8th Street and Lorena Street, to the northwest corner. The pedestrian was in the crosswalk when a possible 2000 to 2010 Honda 4-door Civic or a vehicle with a similar body style, was making a left turn from 8th Street onto northbound Lorena Street.



The vehicle struck the pedestrian, who rolled onto the hood of the vehicle, then rolled off onto the street. The driver continued driving and never stopped to render aid or identify themselves.

The pedestrian sustained minor injuries and took himself to a local hospital.

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 collision was recorded by a surveillance camera from a local business. The vehicle will likely have damage to the hood.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the LAPD Central Traffic Division Detectives at (213) 833-3713 or Detective-II Juan Campos (213) 486-0755 or email him 31480@lapd.online. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247). Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call the LA Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477) or go directly to www.lacrimestoppers.org.
