Hancock Park Fatal Hit & Run Ejection Crash


Around 12:45 AM Wednesday morning, LAFD Paramedics responded to the intersection of Beverly Blvd & Highland Ave in regards to a traffic collision. Paramedics arrived to find a work truck that was slammed into and struck a utility pole. The driver was ejected from the truck. A mustang that crashed into the truck was seen fleeing the scene after the crash. The ejected victim was found to be in full traumatic arrest and ultimately declared deceased on scene. A second patient was transported, though it is unclear if they were the passenger of the work truck or another vehicle. LAPD West Traffic will be handling.
