Families Plead for Hit-and-Run Driver to Come Forward — Doug Kolk Reports
The motorist crashed into a bus bench at Whittier and Atlantic boulevards (map) at about 5:15 p.m. Wednesday, prompting a major emergency response. A bus shelter was knocked on its side by the impact.
The SUV struck a female pedestrian on the sidewalk, 31-year-old Sara Lopez, and Santiago Perez, 56, who was seated at the Metro bus shelter and became pinned under the SUV. Both were in critical condition Thursday, authorities said.
