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.

LOS ANGELES: Bicyclist, 55, Suffers Major Injuries in Hit and Run Crash on Outpost Drive

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

LOS ANGELES, California –  A 55-year-old bicyclist is in critical condition with major injuries after being struck by a hit and run driver Friday afternoon on Outpost Drive near Mulholland Drive, according to a Los Angeles Police Department press release.

The injured bicyclist was struck about 4 p.m. by a driver in a rust-colored vehicle described as possibly a late model Jeep Cherokee traveling southbound on Outpost Drive.  The driver fled the scene immediately after the crash without identifying themselves as required by California law. The driver faces felony hit and run charges if he is apprehended by police.

Los Angeles Fire Department Paramedics transported the injured bicyclist by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment of major injuries sustained in the bicycle accident.

Witnesses are asked to contact the West Traffic Division Detective Section at 213-473-0234. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (1-877-527-3247).

According to the annual California Statewide Integrated Traffic report there were 554 fatal and 50,817 injury traffic accidents reported in Los Angeles County in 2009. Additionally, there were 2,805 fatal and 163,524 injury crashes in California in 2009.

“Bicyclists are especially vulnerable to being hit by cars on our roadways and drivers who flee such crashes are both a coward and a criminal under the law,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm. “Indeed the injuries sustained by bicyclists are some of the most severe on our roads and it’s important that they receive care immediately for their injuries.”

Police investigate every car accident involving a death to determine the cause of a crash, Seegmiller explains. The investigation will seek to find out if there was anyone driving under the influence of alcohol, distracted or if there were any circumstances that may have led to the crash that were illegal or reckless.

For roughly 30 years, the legal experts at the Seegmiller Law Firm have represented hundreds of clients who were injured in traffic accidents or have lost a loved one.

If you are injured the insurance company may try to settle your claim quickly, but they do not have your best interests in mind. Some injuries may lead to long-term ailments requiring pain medication, therapy or loss of function. You may require time off work to recover from injuries completely and those costs are not likely part of the settlement they will offer you.
