A driver was being sought Monday after a hit-and-run collision in Redondo Beach that left a woman injured and her dog dead.
In an interview, Lindsay Harrie said that about 7 a.m. she was out for her morning walk with her beloved dog Kira, a 6-month-old terrier mix.
They were crossing the street at the intersection of Grant Avenue and Slauson Lane (map) when they were struck by a car that was making a left turn, Harrie said, adding that the motorist then drove away.
“They didn’t stop. They just kept going,” she said, tearfully. “Then I saw (Kira) in the middle of the road, bleeding.”
The crash, which was captured on surveillance video, occurred about a block from the home that she shares with her husband, Steve Harrie.
“I heard these screams,” he told KTLA. “Here she is sitting on the ground, covered in our dog’s blood. She was pretty scraped up, too.”
Lindsay Harrie wore a brace on her right leg and was walking with a crutch Monday evening. She suffered a bruised knee and an injured shoulder in the collision, she said.
“My knee hit the ground really hard,” she recalled. “It’s swollen and it’s sprained right now.”
A spokeswoman for the Redondo Beach Police Department confirmed that an active investigation into the incident was ongoing.
Near the crash site, the Harries posted flyers that described the hit-and-run and the vehicle -- a dark-colored four-door sedan with tinted windows.
“I just want them to find him and I want them to give justice to us,” Lindsay Harrie said.
Anyone with information abut the collision was asked to call Redondo Beach police at 310-379-2477.
