LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Authorities sought the public's help Tuesday to find a hit-and-run motorist responsible for badly injuring a pedestrian in Wilmington more than six months ago.
The man was struck by a car at about 4 p.m. on Oct. 9 at L Street at Figueroa Street, and was hospitalized for treatment of severe injuries, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
"A white four-door Chevrolet sedan, possibly a Malibu or Impala, was traveling eastbound on L Street negotiating a left turn to go northbound on Figueroa Street," an LAPD statement said.
"The vehicle struck a pedestrian who was crossing in a westbound direction on Figueroa Street," police continued. "The force of the impact caused the pedestrian to go airborne and collide with the roadway."
A standing reward of up to $25,000 has been offered by the city of Los Angeles for information that helps solve a non-fatal hit-and-run.
Anyone with information on the case was urged to call the LAPD South Traffic Division at 323-421-2500, or 877-LAPD-247. Tipsters may also call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
