Fatal Hit and Run Traffic Collision NR20306dm

Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department's West Traffic Division are seeking the public's assistance in identifying the suspect responsible for the Hit and Run traffic collision that killed 24-year-old Destin Moore.

On September 27, 2020, around 11:00 p.m., Olympic Area patrol officers responded to a man down in the north/south alley west of Vermont Avenue, north of Council Street. Los Angeles Fire department paramedics responded and transported the victim to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The case was given to detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department's West Bureau Homicide due to the injuries sustained by the victim. The case was transferred to West Traffic Division after the medical examiner from the L.A. County Coroner's Office determined the victim's injuries were consistent with being struck by a vehicle.

Drivers are reminded to drive at a safe speed and if you become involved in a collision, you should pull over and stop as soon as it is safe to do so, notify emergency services, and remain at the scene to identify yourself.

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 who provide information leading to the offender's identification, apprehension, and conviction or resolution through a civil compromise.
