LOS ANGELES, CA (February 25, 2021) – Wednesday afternoon, pedestrian Ronal Merdio Villatoro, 33, died in a hit-and-run crash on 88th Place and Main Street.
Just after noon, a westbound truck crashed with a northbound Toyota Camry on 88th Place and Main Street. Then, the truck went west and eventually hit a pedestrian who was “either on the sidewalk or in the vicinity,” Ponce revealed.
As a result, the pedestrian succumbed to injuries at the scene.
A video revealed that an older model Ford Ranger and Toyota collided. Then, the truck crashed into a parked Nissan Sentra and sustained back-end damage.
The Camry occupants were uninjured. Meanwhile, all three occupants of the truck fled the scene. At this time, the authorities are seeking to arrest the driver and the other two involved.
William Cooper, a media relations officer for the Police Department revealed that two of the runners were both males. One of them wore a yellow shirt with jeans and carrying a DeWalt toolbox.
On the other hand, the other man wore a green vest. Both of them were last seen running toward an alley on Broadway toward 90th Street.
The authorities asked anyone with information about the crash to call LAPD at 877-527-3247 or submit an anonymous tip online at www.lacrimestoppers.org.
