Woman Dies in Fatal Hit-and-Run Crash in Compton
COMPTON, CA (May 08, 2019) – A woman in her 20s died in a fatal hit-and-run collision in Compton at South Bullis Road and East Alondra Boulevard Monday night.
Authorities said the victim, who was a Hispanic woman in her 20s, was left to die in her vehicle after the incident.
Surveillance cameras caught the hit-and-run driver speeding and blowing a stop sign at Bullis Road at around 9 p.m. Moments after that, sparks shoot out as the suspect struck the side of the victim’s Nissan Altima.
The suspect fled on foot and abandoned the smashed blue Mitsubishi Montero at the crash site. Some residents said they saw the suspect hopping on top of homes and getting away.
Nearby business owner Tony Gonzales said he saw the crash on video and described it as horrible. He also reflected on Sunday’s fatal hit-and-run crash in Highland Park where a driver hit a car and left two brothers dead. That hit-and-run driver also abandoned his vehicle at the scene of the crash.
The investigators and the family of the victim in the Compton hit-and-run crash are asking for the public’s help in locating the suspect. Anyone with helpful information can call 1-800-222-TIPS. The cause of the fatal crash is under investigation.
