A 20-year-old man who was allegedly the driver in a hit-and-run that left a woman dead and a man injured was arrested after returning to the scene of the crash with his mother, LAPD officials said Sunday.
At about 10:10 p.m. the previous night, the two pedestrians were walking in a marked crosswalk at the intersection of La Brea Avenue and Adams Boulevard -- which is located in the West Adams District of South L.A.-- when they were struck by a Toyota Sequoia, according to Officer Mike Lopez of the Los Angeles Police Department.
Both victims were transported to a local hospital, where the woman later died, Lopez said. The man was severely injured in the collision, but was last reported to be in stable condition.
The Toyota, which was driving southbound on La Brea at the time, initially fled the scene, Lopez said.
But minutes later, the alleged driver returned to the crash site with his mother.
He "apparently went home, at which time his mother confronted him regarding the damage to the vehicle and brought him back to scene,” LAPD Lt. Charles Springer said at the crash site.
The man was transported by officers from LAPD's 77th Division and booked on suspicion of felony hit-and-run, according to Lopez. His name has not been released.
Police also have not identified the victims of the hit-and-run.
An investigation into the incident was ongoing.
