Police Request Public Assistance to Identify Suspect in Larchmont Hit-and-Run Incident [Los Angeles, CA]

Los Angels, CA (July 9, 2024)- In the wake of the tragic Larchmont Hit-and-Run Incident, police are appealing to the public for help in locating the motorist responsible for fatally striking a 26-year-old woman.

The incident occurred in the early hours of June 22, at around 3:20 a.m., when the woman was crossing North Western Avenue at Rosewood Avenue within a marked crosswalk.

A late-model white pickup truck, potentially a Chevrolet or Ford, traveling southbound on Western Avenue, hit her and fled the scene, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Following the collision, paramedics from the Los Angeles Fire Department promptly transported the woman to a nearby hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries.

The identity of the victim is currently being withheld by the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner pending notification of her next of kin.

In their statement, the police emphasized the legal obligations of drivers involved in collisions. They reminded motorists that if they find themselves in such situations, they must pull over safely, contact emergency services, and remain at the scene to identify themselves.

Failing to do so not only exacerbates the legal consequences but also adds to the trauma of the victim’s loved ones.

To aid in the apprehension of the suspect, the city has announced a reward of up to $50,000 for information that leads to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the individual responsible for this fatal hit-and-run.

Anyone with information about this incident is strongly encouraged to contact LAPD West Traffic detectives at 213-473-0234. Calls made outside of business hours or on weekends should be directed to 877-527-3247. For those who wish to remain anonymous, tips can be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477 or through their website at lacrimestoppers.org.

In tragic incidents like the Larchmont Hit-and-Run, the families of victims may be entitled to various types of compensation. This compensation can cover a range of damages including medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, loss of income, loss of companionship, and emotional distress.

Medical expenses can be substantial, covering emergency services, hospital stays, surgeries, and any other treatments required due to the incident. Funeral and burial costs also place a financial burden on the victim’s family during an already difficult time.

Loss of income is another critical factor, especially if the victim is a primary earner. This compensation aims to mitigate the financial impact on the family caused by the sudden loss of a loved one. Additionally, the victim’s family may be entitled to compensation for loss of companionship and emotional distress, recognizing the profound and often long-lasting emotional impact of such a tragic loss.
