Man Killed In Los Angeles Hit-And-Run Crash
A man was killed Tuesday night after a hit-and-run crash in South Los Angeles. The accident occurred around 7:30 p.m. at Wadsworth Avenue and East 106th Street, the Los Angeles County Coroner said.
The man has been identified as 19-year-old Jerry Arredondo Jr. of Los Angeles. The vehicle that fatally struck Arredondo is described as a 2013 silver Chevrolet Camaro. It is a rental car from Hertz. Arredondo was hit as he was getting out of his car, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
“They were traveling at a high rate of speed, approximately up to maybe 100 mph on a residential street. He hit a dip at the corner of Wadsworth, lost control. The first collision was actually the victim’s car and at that point, that’s when he hit the victim, throwing the victim approximately 40 feet,” Sgt. Hendley Hawkins said in an interview with CBS Los Angeles.
The suspect has not been apprehended, allegedly fleeing the scene in a silver BMW. The Los Angeles Police Department said Wednesday that they have contacted the driver’s uncle along with the woman who rented the Camaro. No arrests have been made at this time.
