The juvenile suspect was with relatives when he turned himself in about 3 p.m.; he was arrested on suspicion of felony hit-and-run after being interviewed by investigators, said Los Angeles Police Department Detective Bill Bustos.

His name has not been released.

The collision occurred about 9:50 p.m. Friday as the victims were crossing Chatsworth Street between Balboa Boulevard and Genesta Avenue, according to an LAPD news release.

After hitting the woman and teen, the male driver "yelled at the victims and simultaneously stuck out his left arm and made an obscene gesture with his hand," the release said.

He fled the scene without rendering aid, according to LAPD.

A 50-year-old woman who suffered serious injuries was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, the release stated. The other victim sustained moderate injures and was also hospitalized.
