Los Angeles Police Department Press Release
Tarzana: The Los Angeles Police Department’s Valley Traffic Division detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect involved in a fatal hit-and-run collision.
On September 14, 2021, at 12:30 a.m., a silver 4-door sedan was traveling southbound on Tampa Avenue south of Oxnard Street when it collided with a pedestrian riding a skateboard that was also traveling on Tampa Avenue outside of a marked crosswalk. The driver of the sedan fled in the vehicle southbound on Tampa Avenue without stopping, identifying themselves, or attempting to render aid to the pedestrian that sustained fatal injuries.
Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded and pronounced the pedestrian dead. The pedestrian is described as a female in her early 30’s and her name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office.
The hit-and-run vehicle is believed to be a possible 2013-2018 Toyota Avalon silver sedan with damage to the front end of the vehicle. This investigation is ongoing.
Drivers are reminded that if they become involved in a collision, they should pull over and stop as soon as it is safe to do so, notify emergency services, and remain at the scene to identify themselves.
The public is also reminded that, as pedestrians, they should exercise caution when crossing streets by doing so in a safe manner, obeying traffic lights, crossing within marked crosswalks, and obeying the rules of the road.
