Leonides Rivas Fatally Struck by Hit-and-Run Driver on South Bonnie Brae Street Near West 6th Street

 
WESTLAKE, CA (March 27, 2019) – A 30-year-old man leaves behind his wife and family following a fatal hit-and-run pedestrian accident on South Bonnie Brae Street near West 6th Street Tuesday.
 
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the victim parked his Nissan Xterra SUV on the west curb of South Bonnie Brae Street to grab some breakfast and a hot beverage before his work as a construction worker.
 
However, as Leonides Rivas stopped in the middle of the street to wait for a vehicle to pass, a hit-and-run driver struck him from behind. The driver of the hit-and-run vehicle, described as a 2002 to 2005 white pickup truck model, fled down South Bonnie Brae Street.
 
Meanwhile, officers responded around 6:19 a.m. and immediately transported the 30-year-old victim to a hospital. Due to his severe multiple blunt-force trauma injuries, Rivas died at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center shortly after.
 
According to investigators, the pickup likely sustained front-end damage with a grill that might have been damaged, as well.
 
Authorities are urging witnesses to call the LAPD to help them determine the driver’s whereabouts.
