Los Angeles, CA – Woman Killed in Hit-and-Run Near East 84th Place

wrongful death lawyerLos Angeles, CA (August 3, 2018) – A fatal hit-and-run occurred on Thursday in Los Angeles.  Police responded to a call regarding the incident around 1:00 am.  Los Angeles Police Sgt. Jeffrey Phelps says officers found a woman lying in the roadway near East 84th Place and South Central Avenue.  The woman suffered serious injuries and was pronounced dead on scene.  Police say that the woman is a local resident in her 40s. Her name has not been released at this time.

Police are actively investigating in an effort to find the driver.  They do not have any concrete leads, however, they believe that a truck may be involved in the crash due to the high volume of trucks passing through the area.   Officers say they are checking nearby businesses to determine if the incident is captured on surveillance videos.

There is no further information available on this incident.

Los Angeles Hit-and-Run

Hit-and-run crashes are some of the most serious types of accidents we encounter.  By law, all drivers are required to remain at the scene of injury accidents.  Failure to do so can result in serious criminal penalties, including fines, probation and jail time.  Police will continue to search for the suspect in hopes that they will be located and held responsible for leaving the scene of this crash.

Our thoughts and condolences are with the victim’s family in this tragic crash.  While the loss of a loved one is never easy, help is available.  In a Los Angeles fatal car accident, the victim’s family can bring a wrongful death case against the negligent driver.  A wrongful death case can lead to appropriate compensation being paid for the loss of a loved one.

We know that no amount of money will ever replace a lost family member.  At the Los Angeles Injury Group, we want to help you begin to move forward with the healing process in the aftermath of a devastating event.
