LOS ANGELES, California – Amos Romasoc, 63, of Los Angeles was killed early Monday morning after a hit and run driver struck him while he was standing on a sidewalk at Western Avenue just south of Romaine Street, according to a press release issued by the Los Angeles Police Department.
Los Angeles Fire Department emergency workers pronounced Romasoc dead at scene.
Now West Traffic Detectives are requesting the public’s help as they attempt to identify the male driver of the vehicle that killed Romasoc about 5:10 a.m. on Sept. 10. The driver and his male passenger abandoned the vehicle, a 2010 Chrysler Sebring, and fled on foot on Romaine Street after the crash. The vehicle’s license plate number is 6LUP437 and is registered in California.
Witnesses say the two suspects removed their shirts and ran into an apartment building at 5640 Santa Monica Boulevard. Roughly 25 minutes later, the two suspects exited the building and were seen getting into a blue Mazda with the California License plate No. 6UGC050.
Under California law, drivers who flee the scene of a traffic collision involving injury or death are criminals and face felony charges.
Police say the driver is a white male about 20 to 30 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs about 140-150 pounds. The passenger is described as a black male also about 20 to 30 years old.
Detectives from West Traffic Division are asking anyone who may have information about this incident to call Officer Hutchings at 213-473-0234. During weekends and off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAPD24-7 (1-877-527-3247).
