Man Killed by Hit-and-run driver in Los Angeles’ Echo Park Area

LOS ANGELES, CA (December 20, 2019) – Jose Mario Vaquero was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver in the morning on Thursday in Los Angeles. The December 19 incident occurred in the Echo Park area, where Douglas Street and Sunset Boulevard intersect.

The time was roughly 5:20 a.m., according to Juan Campos. Campos is a detective with the Los Angeles Police.

Reports say Vaquero had been walking across Sunset Boulevard and a vehicle—which as traveling east—hit him. According to reports, a person who witnessed the incident said Vaquero was thrown in the air by the impact. The driver did not stop to help Vaquero, but fled the site of the incident.

Responders arrived and pronounced Vaquero deceased at the incident site. He was 60 years old.

Investigators are looking for the driver involved in the crash, and the vehicle. The vehicle was described as dark blue in color, with windows that are tinted dark, according to Moses Castillo. Castillo is a detective. In video captured by a surveillance camera, the vehicle appears to be a Honda Accord.

Investigators are continuing their work to gather details and evidence regarding the incident.
