Suspected Hit-and-run Driver Arrested for Pedestrian’s Death in South Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 6, 2020) –  A pedestrian was killed in a hit-and-run crash early in the morning on Thursday in Los Angeles, and police arrested the suspected driver. The February 6 incident occurred in the neighborhood of South-Central, on South Hill Street close to where it intersects with West Adams Boulevard.

The time ws roughly a little after 1:00 a.m., according to Los Angeles Police.

Reports say the pedestrian was likely crossing the road not within a crosswalk that is marked when a vehicle—described as a Toyota Prius—hit him. The driver did not stop to help the victim, but left the incident site.

Responders arrived and pronounced the victim deceased at the incident site. He was identified only as 34 years old. His name and city of residence have not been reported.

According to reports, the driver traveled on Hill Street before leaving the vehicle close to 30th Street, and then running away. Authorities used dogs to help them find the suspect driver.

John Pinto, who is a captain with the Los Angeles Police Department, said the dogs—identified as bloodhounds—picked up the scent of the suspect, and authorities found the suspect at his home.

According to Pinto, the suspect was arrested. The identity of the suspect, including name, age, and gender, has not been reported.

Investigators are continuing to collect details, information, and evidence regarding the incident.
