Los Angeles, CA – Hit-and-Run Takes One Life at Avalon Blvd & 107th

Los Angeles, CA (October 10, 2020) – A 22-year-old female lost her life after being struck by a vehicle at an intersection in Los Angeles this past Thursday morning. 

The crash occurred at approximately 4:30 a.m. on the morning of Thursday, October 8 at the intersection of Avalon Boulevard and 107th Street.  For unknown reasons, an unidentified driver struck a woman who was attempting to cross the intersection, dragged her for a block and a half, and then fled the scene. 

The victim has not been identified at this time as police continue their investigation into the circumstances of the crash. A police search is currently active concerning the hit-and-run driver who ultimately and tragically left the woman to die.

We would like to offer our sincere and heartfelt condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. 

California Hit-and-Runs

California is second in the nation when it comes to the state with the most traffic-related fatalities that occur annually. A percentage of these accidents are hit-and-runs. A hit-and-run crash occurs when a driver causes an accident and then flees the scene of the incident in order to avoid prosecution. In 2016, there were over 2,000 deaths attributed to hit-and-run crashes in the United States. Approximately 337 of those deaths occurred in California. 

The Golden State sees approximately 3,200 deaths per year due to fatal California traffic accidents. These collisions are constantly changing the lives of injured victims and their family members and imposing lasting impacts upon everyone affected by them. Negligent actions performed while driving such as speeding, intoxication, and distraction can endanger the lives of not only the negligent driver but also everyone else they encounter on the road at any given time. 

When lives are lost due to negligent driver errors, family members are often left to deal with not only the painful loss of their loved one, but also perhaps outstanding medical bills, funeral costs, and other costs associated with their family member’s accident. In worst-case scenarios, families lose an important source of income along with losing their loved one, which can impose even further financial burdening upon them. If you have recently lost a loved one due to the negligence of another person, contact a California wrongful death attorney. An attorney will be able to assist you with moving forward after a recent accident by informing you of your legal right to compensation. You could be entitled to significant financial compensation for any injuries, losses, or damages you may have endured as a result of a sudden collision.

    The team at Agnew Brusavich cannot come more highly recommended. If you should have some sort of personal injury case, particularly if you are a cyclist, I cannot think of a better team to handle a personal injury case.
