Police Search For Driver In Fatal Hit-And-Run At South LA Bus Stop

LOS ANGELES ( — Police Tuesday searched for a hit-and-run driver suspected of triggering a crash that killed a man and critically injured his wife and daughter at a bus stop in South Los Angeles.

The crash unfolded around 6:40 p.m. Monday in the 400 block of S. Figueroa Street, according to police when a Range Rover collided with a Buick.

A preliminary investigation revealed a couple, believed to each be around 70 years old, were sitting with their daughter when one of the cars careened into the bus stop.

Paramedics transported the victims to a hospital for treatment, where the man was pronounced dead. A fourth person declined treatment at the scene.

The driver of the Range Rover stayed at the scene, but the driver of the Buick fled.

A description of the Buick driver was not immediately available.

Authorities had not identified the victims Tuesday evening.

Neighbors remembered the man killed as a kind caregiver to his wife who lived just a block from the site of the crash.

Neighbors urged the hit-and-run driver to surrender to police.

"You shouldn't have run in the first place," a neighbor said. "You're making it only worse for yourself."

Anyone with information on the suspect was asked to contact the LAPD South Traffic Division.
