Hit-run driver kills Los Angeles woman carrying toddler

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police are looking for a hit-and-run driver who struck and killed a woman as she carried her 2-year-old son across a street.

Police say the 32-year-old woman was standing in the middle of Alhambra Avenue Wednesday evening when she was struck by a westbound vehicle.

The impact hurled her into eastbound lanes where she was struck by a pickup truck. Her son was thrown 50 feet down the road.

Paramedics pronounced the woman dead at the scene and the little boy was hospitalized for treatment of head lacerations.

The first driver fled but the pickup driver stayed at the scene and was questioned and released.

The suspect vehicle may be a Honda SUV with left side damage.
