Man dies following Echo Park traffic accident

A 31-year-old man who was struck by a vehicle on Alvarado Street in Echo Park Sunday night died from his injuries a few hours later, police said. The man was hit by a northbound car at about 8 PM near Montrose Street, said LAPD Dect. Felix Padilla with the Central Traffic Bureau. Initial reports on Sunday described the accident as a hit and run. But that was not the case, said Padilla. The motorist, who remained on the scene of the accident, said he did not see the victim, who was not in a crosswalk, Padilla said. There was no evidence that the driver was speeding or that alcohol was involved. The victim, whose identity was not available, was transported to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center with major head injuries. He died a few hours later early Monday morning.

  1. This is all just so awful. My husband and I were backing out of the Pizza Buona parking lot when were heard the initial impact. We pulled forward into the lot to check our car because we thought we hit something. We didn't, and our car was fine. We heard a woman screaming hysterically Southbound on Alvarado and went to investigate the situation where we saw a man face down in the intersection bleeding from head injuries and not moving. The paramedics showed up and pumped the man and took him by ambulance. I hope to never see something like this again. I feel so bad for the person that hit him and hope that he will eventually recover.

  3. even in the face of tragedy someone has to pull the dictionary out and correct the grammar, people please!
