Police have asked the public for help Thursday in their search for a hit-and-run driver who struck and killed a pedestrian as she was crossing a street in Valley Glen earlier this month.
The incident occurred just before 9:30 p.m. on Sept. 12 as the victim was crossing near the intersection of Victory Boulevard and Wilkinson Avenue, the Los Angeles Police Department stated in a news alert.
The driver fled the area without providing aide to the victim, the LAPD stated.
She was taken to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
The victim’s name was not released.
Authorities are unsure what type of vehicle struck the woman, but believe it is either a newer, light color sedan or a dark compact sedan.
Investigators released a surveillance image of each of the vehicles.
No description of the driver was available.
Anyone with information was asked to call the LAPD at 818-644-8115. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477.
