A woman was in custody Friday in connection with a hit-and-run that killed a pedestrian in East Los Angeles.
The collision occurred around 11:15 p.m. Thursday near Whittier Boulevard and Via Del Oro when a man was struck by a 2018 Chevrolet Malibu as he was crossing the street, according to California Highway Patrol.
A photographer with RMG News captured video of the victim lying on the road where paramedics tried to revive him.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver initially fled but was found walking on foot in the area of East Allston Street and Westside Drive roughly 90 minutes after the collision, according to RMG News.
Video showed police with a handcuffed woman who was eventually placed into a police cruiser.
The CHP identified her as Lilibeth Cindy Gonzalez, 35, of Los Angeles. She faces charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and hit-and-run.
The man who died has only been described as a 60-year-old Los Angeles man, and his identity is being withheld until his family can be notified.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Officer C. Alonso or Officer M. Lizarraga at the CHP East Los Angeles Area office at 323-980-4600.
