On Thursday, March 3, 2016, a 64-year-old Hispanic woman took a stroll on the sidewalk in the southern part of Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Police Department reported that an SUV hit her around 6:30 a.m. in the morning in the Manchester Square area at the intersection of Normandie Avenue at 76th Street. The report further elaborates that a dark Ford Explorer was heading north on Normandie and collided into an empty school bus. It then backed up and drove around the bus onto the sidewalk to hit the woman. The driver immediately left the scene to continue driving northward without looking back and taking responsibility for the accident.
The Hispanic woman was ushered to the hospital only to die soon afterwards. Police at first glance thought the woman was Asian. Surveillance cameras caught the SUV on tape, but the image is blurry.
The Los Angeles Administrative Code was modified on April 15, 2015, by the City Council to deal with hit and run situations. The Hit and Run Reward Program Trust Fund was developed. A reward of up to $50,000 is available for information concerning the SUV driver’s identification and whereabouts. Submit information to Officer Hernandez at 323-421-2500 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. during the work week.
