A surveillance video of the felony hit-and-run shows the pedestrian rolling across the hood of the car and then tumbling to the pavement as the motorist drives away without stopping.
Here, according to the LAPD Central Traffic Division, is a rundown of what happened last Wednesday:
“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 pedestrian sustained minor injuries and took himself to a local hospital.
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).
