Pedestrian Fatally Struck in Los Angeles near West Adams Boulevard
LOS ANGELES, CA (February 7, 2020) — Early Thursday morning, a man was fatally struck in a hit-and-run pedestrian accident on South Hill Street.
The incident happened around 1:00 a.m., just before investigators arrived and examined the scene.
According to reports, the male pedestrian might have been entering his vehicle on South Hill Street at the time. There, a southbound Toyota Prius struck him.
The Toyota struck the victim outside of a marked crosswalk, say reports.
Due to the brute impact, the 34-year-old man died at the scene. As for the Prius driver, he drove off and abandoned the vehicle near 30th Street before fleeing on foot.
The driver’s failure to render aid prompted police to take charge and use bloodhounds in their search for his whereabouts. Soon after, the bloodhounds led officers to the driver’s residence, where police arrested him without incident.
The surrounding area on South Hill Street was closed off while crews worked on scene. However, the roadway has since reopened.
