Hit-and-run Driver Strikes and Kills Woman in Encino

ENCINO, CA (October 17, 2018) – A hit-and-run driver struck and killed a woman in Encino on the weekend. Reports say the victim—identified as Yana Lavrentev, a 30 year old—had been out with her husband and friends prior to the crash.

According to her husband, Evgeny, his wife was walking in a crosswalk that is marked on Ventura Boulevard, close to Louise Avenue. When Yana walked into the crosswalk, a vehicle hit her.

According to a witness, identified in reports as Yaroslava Markova, the accident occurred very fast, too fast for them to react.

The driver did not stop for a red light, witnesses say, and did not brake either before the collision happened, or after the vehicle struck the victim. Witnesses said the vehicle could be a silver 1996, or early 2000 Toyota 4-Runner.

Monday evening, Yana died in the hospital from injuries she suffered.

Authorities ask that if anyone has information about the accident, he or she should call Valley Traffic Detective Lisset Fuentes. The number is 818-644-8021. Detective Dan Menesez can also be called at 818-644-8028.
