LAPD Offers ,000 Reward for Information on South L.A. Hit-and-Run Street Takeover

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has announced a $25,000 reward for any information regarding a hit-and-run incident that occurred during a street takeover in South Los Angeles. The incident, which took place on April 13 at the intersection of Manchester Avenue and San Pedro Street, involved a driver striking multiple pedestrians before fleeing the scene.

LAPD Det. Ryan Moreno addressed the media during a news conference held on Friday morning, shedding light on the ongoing investigation. Authorities are particularly interested in identifying the hit-and-run driver as well as the pedestrians who were injured during the incident. Of utmost concern is a woman who was captured in videos lying unconscious and bleeding on the ground. Det. Moreno revealed that there is a possibility she may have succumbed to her injuries, although her identity and current condition remain unknown.

According to the LAPD, the woman was standing in the middle of the street when the driver of an Infiniti G37 struck her and others before fleeing. The impact of the collision caused the woman to be forcefully knocked to the ground, where she was observed bleeding from her head and appearing unconscious. Witnesses nearby promptly assisted by transporting her away from the scene.

This incident occurred a few miles west of a similar tragedy that took place on December 25, 2022, where a 24-year-old woman lost her life during another street takeover. In that case, a 28-year-old man from Orange County was arrested in connection with her death.

The LAPD is urging anyone with information about the hit-and-run driver or the pedestrians involved in the April 13 incident to come forward. The $25,000 reward serves as an incentive for potential witnesses to provide crucial details that could aid in the investigation.

  1. Did you know that according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were approximately 737,100 hit-and-run crashes reported in the United States in 2019 alone? It’s unfortunate that these incidents occur so frequently, but it’s great to see the LAPD offering a substantial reward to encourage people to come forward with information.
