Detectives with the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Traffic Division are seeking the public’s help in identifying a driver involved in a hit-and-run collision that left a pedestrian dead in Hollywood.
The collision occurred around 8:44 p.m. on Sept. 12 near Sunset Boulevard and McCadden Place. A white 2018 Audi S5 was traveling westbound on Sunset Boulevard approaching McCadden Place when it collided with a pedestrian who was laying in the roadway. The driver of the Audi continued westbound on Sunset Boulevard before making a U-turn and stopping, police said. The unidentified driver exited the Audi, flagged down an LAPD patrol vehicle and directed officers to the pedestrian. The driver then reentered his vehicle and fled eastbound on Sunset Boulevard without identifying himself.
The officers rendered aid to the victim. Paramedics responded and pronounced the pedestrian dead at the scene. The victim was not identified.
Drivers are reminded that if they are involved in a collision, they are required to pull over and remain at the scene to identify themselves.
A reward of up to $50,000 is available for information leading to the identification and conviction of suspects involved in fatal hit-and-run collisions. Anyone with information is urged to contact West Traffic detectives at (213)473-0234. During weekends and off-hours, call (877)LAPD247.
