LOS ANGELES, California – A 30-year-old woman was injured Sunday morning in a hit and run pedestrian accident on La Cienega Boulevard, according to a Los Angeles Police Department press release.
The LAPD is seeking the help of witnesses who may have seen the pedestrian accident. The vehicle is described as light in color, but there are no further details, the report said. The car was traveling northbound on La Cienega about 8:45 a.m.., but after striking the woman it drove away without assisting the injured woman as required by law.
The Los Angeles City Fire Department workers transported the woman to a local hospital where she was treated and is expected to recover from her injuries.
“Hit and run drivers are not only cowards, but they can face heavy charges for fleeing the scene of a car accident if someone was injured or killed,” said Attorney West Thomas, founder of the Thomas Law Firm. “Witnesses to these types of accidents should consider coming forward with information to help police and ultimately help obtain justice to the injured victim.”
