Sebastian Chavez Killed, Woman Injured in North Hills Hit-and-Run Crash

North Hills, CA (October 18, 2021) – On Sunday, 1-and-a-half-year-old Sebastian Chavez dies, and a woman suffered injuries in a West Nordhoff Street pedestrian accident.

The crash happened at about 7:35 a.m. in the 15500 block area near Langdon Avenue.

Officers said a Honda HR-V and a gray Toyota Camry crashed.  The impact of the crash sent the Honda over a curb, where it struck an adult woman and Chavez walking on the sidewalk. 

Immediately, the rescuers rushed Chavez to a local hospital in critical condition. Unfortunately, he later succumbed to his injuries. 

Similarly, the rescuers rushed the woman to a hospital in serious condition. However, reports said she returned home later on Sunday.

Child Loses His Life in an Accident

Ana Morales, Chavez’s mother, said the experience is so painful, and that it’s something she would never wish on anyone.

Morales added that Chavez was born prematurely. He spent more than two months in the newborn intensive care unit.

“I watched him fight for his life when he was just born, and it’s crazy that an accident like this has taken him from me,” Morales said. 

Meanwhile, the authorities continue to investigate the incident. They have not determined yet if alcohol, drugs, or speed were a factor in the fatal accident. Officers said the investigation is treating the case as a hit-and-run.

The Honda driver remained at the scene after the wreck, however, the Toyota left the scene. 

Moreover, the Toyota driver met with officers at the LAPD Valley Traffic Station between 4 and 4:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Officers said the driver provided their information and a statement. Reports indicated that on Sunday evening, the drivers are cooperating with investigators and are not under arrest.

Pedestrian Accidents Can Be Fatal

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, more individuals are staying at home, whether by preference or under a state-mandated lockdown. As people adjust to unprecedented routines, a classic concept has risen in modern popularity: walking.

Americans, as well as others around the world, have taken it upon themselves to walk outside daily. Taking walks is usually the only time in which people are spending outside. The increase of foot traffic on local sidewalks, intersections, and roads seems harmless enough.

However, this timeless habit can have devastating consequences. Taking walks is becoming increasingly dangerous, leading to a surge of pedestrian accidents annually.
