Man Second Victim in Two Days Killed in South Los Angeles by Hit-and-run Drivers

LOS ANGELES, CA (October 7, 2019) – Wardell Nelson, Jr. was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver early in the morning on Sunday, the second pedestrian to die in a hit-and-run incident in a two-day span in South Los Angeles. The October 6 incident that killed Nelson occurred in the neighborhood of Vermont Knolls, where Figueroa Street and Manchester Boulevard intersect.

The time was roughly 3:40 a.m.

Reports say Nelson had been crossing Manchester Boulevard on foot when a vehicle, which has not been described, struck him. The driver of the vehicle did not stop to help Nelson, but fled the site.

As Nelson was lying on the road, a second vehicle hit him. The second vehicle was described as a Chevrolet Traverse. The driver of the Chevrolet stayed at the scene.

Responders arrived and pronounced Nelson deceased at the incident site. He was 61 years old and a resident of Los Angeles.

Two days earlier, a pedestrian—identified only as a woman 61 years old—was also struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver in South Los Angeles. The woman had been struck roughly a mile away from the site of Sunday’s incident, in the Vermont Vista neighborhood.

Reports say the woman had been hit multiple times by vehicles. She died at the incident site.

Investigators are searching for the drivers and vehicles involved in both fatal incidents. They are continuing to collect details and evidence.

If anyone has information about the incidents, the person should contact Detective Gonzales or Detective Moreno, who are with the Los Angeles Police Department. The number is 323-421-2500. Calls can also be made to 877-527-3247. Anonymous tips can be made to L.A. Regional Crime Stoppers. That number is 800-222-8477.
