A city employee suffered severe injuries this morning after being struck by a vehicle near the Silver Lake Dog Park.
Sgt. Kevin Custard with the LAPD Central Traffic Bureau said the victim was hit near Silver Lake Boulevard and Fanning Street at about 8:20 a.m. The incident is still being investigated but Custard said it was not a hit-and-run. “There has been no determination of fault,” he said.
* Update on Tuesday @ 8 am: An earlier report based on information from officers at the scene said the victim had died from his injuries. But that was not the case, said Detective Michael Kaden with the Central Traffic Bureau. The victim remained in critical condition late Monday afternoon, Kaden said.
The Recreation and Parks worker was hit struck after he got out of his city truck and walked across Silver Lake Boulevard by a car traveling northbound. The driver of the car, who was traveling about 25 miles per hour, said he did not see the man because the sun obscured his vision, Kaden said.
