Fatal Hit-and-Run in Olympic Division NR21220ll

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department's West Traffic Division detectives are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect involved in a fatal hit-and-run collision.

On August 18, 2021, around 8:06 p.m., a female pedestrian was crossing northbound Washington Blvd. in a marked crosswalk at Gramercy Pl. A silver sedan was travelling westbound on Washington Blvd. when it collided into the pedestrian. The impact caused the pedestrian to travel in a southwest direction and collided with the roadway.
