Police seek hit-and-run driver who left woman with serious injuries

Detectives are seeking the public’s help today in identifying the suspect in a hit-and-run collision that left a woman with severe injuries.

Police responded at 2:55 a.m. Monday to the 100 block of East Fourth Street in downtown Los Angeles where Sandra Martin, 61, told them that as she was crossing the street a four-door passenger vehicle traveling in reverse struck her and knocked her down.

The driver then drove away from the scene without offering any aid, according to a Los Angeles Police Department bulletin.

The driver is described as a Black man with a thin build, between 170 and 190 pounds and between 25 and 30 years old. There was no description of the vehicle.

Martin was taken to a hospital with severe injuries that required surgery.

She was walking her dog, a brown long-haired Chihuahua-terrier mix named ”Little Man,” when she was struck by the vehicle and the dog ran away. She is asking for the public’s help in finding him.

Anyone with information about the hit-and-run vehicle, the driver or his whereabouts is asked to call Det. Juan Campos with Central Traffic Detectives at 213-833-3713. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call 1-800-222-8477 or visit https://www.lacrimestoppers.org.
